(4.12) The regional center just told me I am eligible for regional center services. When do I get my first IPP?

Your written IPP must be done within 60 days after your initial intake and assessment.[1]Section 4646(c). So, you will have your IPP meeting and your IPP document in 60 days. Sometimes – especially with your first IPP – you may need more than one meeting. A follow-up meeting must be held within 15 days, unless you agree to a later date.[2]Section 4646(h).

If you have not heard from the regional center about your IPP meeting date within 2-3 weeks of becoming a regional center client, call the regional center and ask when the IPP meeting will be held. You can ask to speak with the regional center person who helped you during the intake process or ask who your service coordinator is.
