Self-Determination Program click here

The Self Determination Program (SDP) roll out is approaching!  To learn more about this new way of receiving services, view and listen to the SDP Information Meeting training posted here.

DDS SDP Information Meeting Training- This is a narrated PowerPoint.  Viewing this meets the training requirement to have your or your family member’s name added to the list of people interested in participating in the initial roll out of the SDP.

The SDP Information Meeting training includes information on how to add your name to the list of people interested in participating in the roll out.

If you would like to attend an Information Meeting in person, trainings are being offered in Sacramento, and our branch offices on various dates and times.  Please click on the link below, for the location nearest you, to see the dates of upcoming meetings.

As a reminder, the SDP will begin when DDS has an approved waiver and will consist of 2500 people statewide, chosen by the DDS. 

UPDATE: The SDP Waiver application was submitted  (copy of submitted application link below) to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) on March 13, 2018.  This begins a 90 day review period which will result in either the waiver being approved, denied or a request by CMS for additional clarification.  Nancy Bargmann, the Director of the Department of Developmental Services (DDS) is hopeful that the application will be approved!!
