A facility that currently has residents funded by a Regional Center or accepts either Regional Center funding support or referrals cannot use CCE funds to expand or enhance that residence/property. Regional Centers support persons with developmental disabilities, and properties that receive Regional Center funding make a commitment to serve that population. To receive CCE funding, a current owner/operator of a facility funded by a Regional Centerwould need to develop a separate property that would serve the priority population of CCE: persons eligible for or receiving SSI/SSP or CAPI benefits or persons experiencing or at risk of homelessness. The new facility can apply for CCE funding as long as it is not also a vendor for a Regional Center or accepting residents funded by a Regional Center. Regional Centers support protected persons, and all co-residents must have background checks, fingerprinting, and other security screening. Failure to do this is not in accord with Regional Center contracts or guidelines.
