Regional centers must implement final hearing decisions as soon as possible and implement the decision no later than 30 days after the date of the final hearing decision.  If the regional center can’t implement the final hearing decision within 30 days, they must notify in writing, the person the hearing was about and any authorized representative and the Department of Developmental Services.  The regional center must explain:

  • The specific exceptional circumstances that make it impossible to implement the decision within 30 days: and
  • The date when the decision will be implemented.

A regional center client or their authorized representative may ask DDS for help getting a hearing decision implemented. Informal agreements and Mediation agreements should also be implemented timely. If you need help getting your agreement or hearing decision implemented, you may email HearingImplementation@dds.ca.gov or use the online form below to ask DDS for help.
