Service Policies are developed & reviewed by the HRC Board Client Services Committee, which consists of board members, parents, people with developmental disabilities, and service providers. Many of these policies have been recently updated to reflect changes in recent years to the Lanterman Act. After they are approved by the HRC Board of Trustees, all service policies have submitted to the California Department of Developmental Services and have been approved.
Respite Care This policy is under review and is to be updated to reflect the Legislative action taken as part of the budget trailer bill process. The current cap on respite services will be lifted effective January 1, 2018. Our HRC policy will need to be revised accordingly.
