Self-Determination Program (SDP)

Welcome to the Self-Determination Program Home Page! We are excited about the possibilities and opportunities this program will provide for those who receive regional center services.

In October of 2013, Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. signed into law the Self-Determination Program, which will provide consumers and their families with more freedom, control, and responsibility in choosing services and supports to help them meet objectives in their Individual Program Plan. Proceeding the 3-year implementation period of the SDP where the program was only available to 2,500 individuals, beginning July 1, 2021, the Self-Determination Program (SDP) will be available to all eligible regional center consumers.

This site is designed to allow individuals interested in the program, participants already in the program and their related support system access to resources to assist in getting enrolled and learning about the SDP.  If you are interested in participating in the SDP, reach out to your regional center for more information on how to get started. If you have other questions, comments, or want to be notified of updates, please e-mail sdp@dds.ca.gov

The Self-Determination Local Advisory Committee at Central Valley Regional Center (CVRC) put together a video that talks about a meaningful life in the community through the Self-Determination Program. You can watch the video on the CVRC website.
