State and Local Advocacy

  • San Diego only enrolled 43 people, despite a lottery slot of 300.
  • Suzy Requarth is the person tasked with “implementation funds and spending plan.”
  • If the Regional Center does not fulfill this mandate, they will have to relinquish their budget to approved SD plans. <– no wonder they’re avoiding your calls
  • If you would like to advocate for San Diego to implement more efficiently, please write to your Representatives and attend committee hearings.
  • Get involved with the committee who makes decisions for us: Self-Determination Local Advisory Committee Meetings are held the 3rd Tuesday of every month. Schedule is here
  • Upcoming: Jun. 15, 2021 5:00-6:30 p.m.
    Register in advance for this meeting
