Harbor Regional Center Services


​Harbor Regional Center provides services to individuals of all ages who have intellectual and developmental disabilities, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, autism, and other conditions that are found to be closely related to intellectual disability or to require the same kinds of services.

The condition must have occurred before the age of 18, be likely to continue indefinitely, and constitute a “substantial” disability for the person.

A disability is “substantial” if it affects three or more of seven major life areas. For example, a person’s ability to communicate or to learn.

The regional center also provides services to infants and toddlers between birth and 36 months of age who have a need for early intervention services, and who meet criteria in one of the following categories:

A primary service that is provided by regional centers is intake and assessment of individuals who may have one of these eligible conditions. During this time we will review any available diagnostic records you may have received previously, and/or arrange for any needed assessments. Read more about our application or “intake” process:

Fees for Services

The State of California has determined some circumstances for which families may be required to pay a fee or share of the cost for services received through the regional centers.

As of June 1, 2022, family fees are waived through the end of 2024.

Family Cost Participation Program

The Family Cost Participation Program (FCPP) is established for the purpose of assessing a cost participation to parents of children who receive three specific regional center services: day care, respite, and/or camping.
