4) Interested in becoming part of the Self Determination Project? You may request that your name be added to the SDRC Self Determination interest list by contacting your Service Coordinator. You will be contacted in the future regarding informational training sessions, orientations etc. Please note that inclusion on the interest list does not mean you will be included automatically in the selection process. Your attendance will be required at a future informational meeting prior to being included in the selection process. These meetings are still pending and will most likely not be scheduled until the state has received federal approval of the program.
