County Compliance Plans and Guidelines

In compliance with federal regulations and state Manual of Policies and Procedures (MPP) Division 21 regulations, each county welfare department (CWD) is responsible for having an updated Civil Rights Compliance Plan (CRCP) in place at all times and for submitting your CRCP two months prior to a CWD’s scheduled civil rights compliance review, or within 30 days of a significant change in county civil rights compliance information. The CRCP establishes the welfare department's civil rights policies and procedures. For the latest information concerning CRCPs and the transition from Annual Plans, please refer to ACL 09-79: Annual Civil Rights Plans.

CRCP Guidelines and Additional Information

The CRCP Guidelines can be found in an accessible Word format at Civil Rights Compliance Plan Guidelines, and counties are encouraged to use this as a template when developing or updating your CRCP. Additionally, there is a set of accessible Table Templates which coordinates with the CRCP Guidelines.

Each CRCP must include an Assurance of Compliance Statement with the director's signature. The Vendor Assurance of Compliance Statement is also available as a PDF.

If county staff have questions regarding this information, they should contact the Civil Rights Section at (916) 654-2107 or e-mail us at
