Inequitable access to developmental services through California’s regional center system has long plagued communities of color. Despite the state’s concerted efforts in recent years to reduce these disparities, a new report by Public Counsel has found that gaps in funding between children of different racial and ethnic groups largely remain and in some cases have worsened over time.
