Centers of Excellence Grant: In September 2015 the NYS Office for People With Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD), in collaboration with the State Education Department (SED) and the Department of Health (DOH) provided grant funding to establish three Centers of Excellence (COE) in the care and treatment of children with ASD and other complex disabilities. A key goal of this new network of Children’s Residential Project (CRP) facilities is for the quality and efficiency of care as well as the network of support services for these children to improve. New standards, metrics, protocols, and research will be developed and shared throughout the grant’s two year duration not only among the Centers but with the other CRPs across NYS. CP of NYS will coordinate the grant activities of the COE: The Center for Discovery, Developmental Disabilities Institute and Upstate Cerebral Palsy.
