Welcome to FNRC

A Glance  

This web site has been developed to provide information about the regional center and about the people it serves. Please feel free to contact us if you have questions or comments.


Far Northern Regional Center is a fixed point of referral for individuals with developmental disabilities and their families.

FNRC also provides services to infants and toddlers (from birth to three years old) who are showing a delay in their development or who are at substantially high risk for a developmental disability.

FNRC coordinates community resources such as education, recreation, health, rehabilitation and welfare for individuals with developmental disabilities.

Opening Page  

The photos exhibited on the FNRC website opening page are selected from the film project “…that’s me!” This 13-minute short features six self-advocates from Chico who share their thoughts about working, success, achievement, self-advocacy, and community inclusion. The film previewed at the 2012 FOCUS Film Festival in Chico and  is currently touring schools where students are transitioning to adulthood.  “…that’s me!” is a project of Far Northern Regional Center and was produced by Far Northern Regional Center and directed by Doug Churchill.

California Online Voter Registration (COVR)

California residents can register to vote online without printing, signing and mailing an application if the COVR website can retrieve your Department of Motor Vehicles signature by matching your California Drivers License or California ID, Date of Birth, and the last four digits of your Social Security Number. You can print, sign and mail the application if no DMV signature is found. COVR sends all applications to county elections officials electronically.

Transparency Portal  

In order to provide the public maximum access to information about its organization and availability of services, our website includes extensive information regarding audits, annual reviews, contracts, policies, and our governing board. You will find these documents and related data throughout our site, and we have pulled all of this information together in one place. We call that place our Transparency Portal.
