 The CA Budget - May revise 2024 is an opportunity to give input on priorities on what our state spends money on to your legislators. Attend to learn the latest Early Intervention issues and how to address them. Early Intervention programs along with many other services provided through the Department of Developmental Services are seeing their rates implemented this year and in the future. Legislators need to hear how things are going with this process.

Do you know who your legislators are? Check here Assembly - www.assembly.ca.gov; Senate - www.senate.ca.gov
Invite them to your program, and let them see and hear from families about the benefits of early intervention.

  • Participants will learn how to participate in the CA legislative process
  • Participants will learn about constituent involvement in the CA Budget process
