With the enactment of Assembly Bill (ABX2-1) (Chapter 3, Statutes
of 2016), many service providers received a rate increase through
the ABX2-1 funds effective July 1, 2016. The rate increase
was for the purpose of increasing wages and/or benefits for staff
that spend a minimum of 75 percent of their time providing direct
services to consumers.
Included in the statute is a mandated requirement that the
Department of Developmental Services (“DDS”), with regional
center participation, must survey all service providers who
received this rate increase effective July 1, 2016.
The mandated survey must be completed no later than
Sunday, October 1, 2017. In order to meet this statutory
timeline, we suggest that you complete the mandated survey
on or before Friday, September 15, 2017.
