(3.10) How does the eligibility review process work?

After the initial intake, the regional center has 120 days to decide if you are eligible.[1]Section 4643(a). But, the regional center has only 60 days to decide, if:

  • A delay would risk your health and safety, or further delay your mental or physical development, or
  • There is a great risk you would be placed in a more restrictive setting. For example, having to move from your family home to a facility.[2]Section 4643(a).

If you become eligible for services, the regional center has 60 days to complete your first Individual Program Plan (IPP).[3]Section 4646(c).
