    This 2013 document is a much more reader-friendly document than ARCA’s 2008 version. Understanding how our system is funded-both operations and purchase of service budgets–is critical to planning strategic reform. This document is very easy to share with Legislators, Regional Centers and the greater community. Thank you all (especially John) for your efforts.

  3. Where do I find the position statement mentioned on page 6? See quote below.

    This paper’s focus on the operations side of the budget should not be construed as
    diminishing the serious underfunding that also exists in the purchase of services budget.
    ARCA addresses the purchase of service funding issue in its position statement titled
    “The Budget Crisis Affecting California’s Regional Centers.”

    ARCA is finalizing a comprehensive revision of, and update to, that report, which should be released some time in February. It will be available via a link on our homepage that will point you to its home in the ARCA Publications section.
