What if I am denied Regional Center services?

What if I am denied Regional Center services?

Published: Feb. 2, 2022Updated: Jul. 13, 2023

If the Regional Center determines that your child is not eligible to become a Regional Center consumer and you disagree with their decision, you can file a written appeal within 60 days of receipt of the decision. See this article for information on how to appeal. If you initially received a denial from one Regional Center but have since moved and are now in another zip code, you can apply to the new Regional Center you’re zoned for. If circumstances have changed since your first application, you could be found eligible for services.

For more information, see our article How to Get Started with Regional Center.
