Paid Internship Program

The Department of Developmental Services amended the Welfare and Institutions Code (WIC) to add section 4870 to encourage competitive integrated employment (CIE) to individuals with developmental disabilities (clients). CIE is full or part time work for which an individual is paid minimum wage or greater in a setting with others who do not have disabilities. Section WIC 4870 authorizes funding to the Department of Developmental Services for a paid internship program. The purpose of the program is to increase vocational skills and abilities of consumers who choose, via the Individual Program Plan (IPP) process, to participate in an internship. Goals of this program include the acquisition of experience and skills for future paid employment, or the internship itself to lead to full or part time paid employment in the same job. For more information, please read the following: Paid Internship Program.

Service Provider Bonus Incentive!

COMPETITIVE INTEGRATED EMPLOYMENT

CIE is full or part-time work for which an individual is paid minimum wage or greater in a setting with others who do not have disabilities. WIC Section 4870 (d) authorizes funding to the Department of Developmental Services for incentive payments to providers for placement and retention of regional center clients, consistent with a client’s Individual program Plan (IPP) payments. The Regional Center will be responsible for making incentive payments to service providers within their catchment area. For detailed information, please read: Service Provider Bonus Incentive.
