Project training is offered both through major Institutes, which bring together some 200 CCR&R participants from a multi-region area of the state, and through smaller regional and local workshops. Topics for all of the sessions reflect concerns that CCR&R staff members tell the State Council are high on their list of priorities.
Last year the Project provided technical assistance, usually involving several on-site visits, to 19 CCR&Rs. CCR&Rs in this group are designated by OCFS as needing intensive technical assistance but CCR&Rs should be encouraged to contact the CCR&R project to receive needed assistance.
COMING LATER THIS YEAR
A forthcoming State Council publication will spell out criteria for best practices. This document details Best Practices Standards for CCR&R programs:. 1. standards for providing services to consumers;. 2. standards for providing quality services to all consumers; and 3. standards for program administration to maximize service delivery and quality for New York’s CCR&Rs. The new report will respond to a need expressed by many CCR&Rs for systematic guidelines that will help them carry out the many different roles they are called on to perform. Visit this page later in 2004 for more information on the publication.
