Purchase of Service Policies


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.
