Can Regional Center pay for an Undivided membership?

Can Regional Center pay for an Undivided membership?

Published: Mar. 23, 2023

Most Regional Centers offer some degree of funding for parent training and education, although eligibility criteria, frequency, and funding caps can vary widely from county to county. While we can’t guarantee that any funding request will be approved, we encourage families to pursue Regional Center funding for some or all of their Undivided membership fees as part of their child’s IPP.

The Lanterman Act allows Regional Centers to fund parent training and education outside of the Regional Center to meet a specific IFSP or IPP goal (Section 4685c).

For tips on requesting funding from your Regional Center, including if your child participates in the Self-Determination Program, see our article How to Request Regional Center Funding for an Undivided Membership.
