Based on the data that FNRC provided to the California Department of Developmental Service on March 1st, 2015, FNRC was found to be out of compliance in meeting the caseload ratios as required by law. Specifically FNRC was over the ratio allowed for:

1. consumers enrolled on the Home and Community Based Services Waiver; and
2. consumers who have moved from the developmental centers to the community since April 14, 1993, and have lived continuously in the community for more than 12 months; and
3. consumers who have not moved from the developmental centers to the community since April 14, 1993, and who are not under the age of three not on the Home and Community Base Services Waiver,

These ratios are mandated by Welfare and Institutions Code section 4640.6, subd (c)

As specified in Welfare and Institutions Code 4640.6, subd (f), a plan of correction must be developed following input from the local area board, local organizations representing consumers, family members, and regional center employees, including recognized labor organizations, service providers and other interest parties.

During the meeting an overview will be provided on how regional center funding for Operations is allocated by the state, and the challenges that are confronting regional center
