Seniors and People with Disabilities contracts with each County to provide a variety of services to individuals with developmental disabilities, through local Community Developmental Disabilities Programs (CDDP)
. Each CDDP is generally part of the larger county Community Mental Health Program (CMHP), and serves as the "gateway" to developmental disability services within the state of Oregon.
All CDDPs are required to participate with the CMHP in planning and developing resources, coordinating services with state hospitals and the training center, negotiating and monitoring contracts and subcontracts with provider and service entities, and documenting all service delivery per state and federal requirements.
The Developmental Disabilities County Relations Unit performs the general oversight of the delivery of services through CDDPs or their private subcontract agencies. Regional Coordinators from this unit are each assigned to specific counties, and must direct and coordinate SPD activities with and between each county and its subcontract providers.
Community Developmental Disabilities Programs (CDDP)
Developmental Disability services are operated primarily within local communities, under contact with state and county government. Each county in the state of Oregon operates, or is a participating member of a Community Developmental Disabilities Program (CDDP)
. Each CDDP is responsible for the planning and implementation of developmental disability services within their county(s), coordinating with local and state human service agencies and other service providers to address the needs of individuals. Each CDDP must maintain compliance with all applicable state and federal regulations.
