CA Budget Signed Monday!

Capital

Monday Governor Newsom placed his signature on the CA Budget (SB74) for 2020-2021. Press release It included the rate adjustment (8.2%) for Infant Development Programs. All your hard work paid off.

"Supplemental Rate Increases for Additional Service Codes—$18 million ($10.8 million General Fund) in 2020-21 and 2021-22 to provide supplemental rate increases for Early Start Specialized Therapeutic Services, Infant Development and Independent Living Services. This approach is consistent with the supplemental rate increases included in the 2019 Budget Act. The increased funding for the three services will be suspended on December 31, 2021. The suspension will be lifted if the Administration determines through the 2021 Budget process that there is sufficient General Fund revenue to support all suspended programs." Page 63, Click Here
