The Central Point of Coordination (CPC) acts as the gatekeeper to a county funded system of services and support for people with an intellectual disability, development disability or anyone who desires mental health services and wishes to access county funds for that purpose. We take application, make eligibility decisions, evaluate the needs of individuals, and work to create and implement a service-funding plan. Eligibility requirements are that you have a diagnosis of mental illness, chronic mental illness, intellectual disability, or developmental disability. An individual needs to meet income and resource guidelines set out in the County Management Plan. The County Management Plan also sets out the services or supports that are covered for individuals.
