Community Placement Plan

The Department (also DDS) has a statutory responsibility to ensure that individuals with developmental disabilities live in the least restrictive setting, appropriate to their needs. The Community Placement Plan (CPP) is designed to enhance the capacity of the community service delivery system and to reduce the reliance on the use of developmental center and other restrictive living environments by providing funding to the regional centers for the development of a variety of resources, including but not limited to residential development, transportation, day program services, and mental health and crisis services, within individual community's consistent with resource development as described in Welfare and Institutions Code, Section 4418.25.

CPP funds also can be used to develop safe, affordable, and sustainable homes as a residential option. CPP funds create consumer permanent housing through the "Buy It Once" model where a non-profit ownership entity (NPO) owns the property for the restricted use by regional center consumers. For this residential option, a regional center must submit a housing proposal to the Department using the guidelines below, requesting approval of CPP funds for the acquisition and development of NPO-owned housing for the benefit of consumers.
