Competitive Integrated Employment (CIE) is not a service, but rather it is the preferred outcome for all of our employment services. Service providers are receiving incentives for assisting individuals in securing employment.

This program was implemented by the California Department of Developmental Services (DDS) and is outlined in Chapter 14 (WIC 4870(d)) of the Lanterman Developmental Disabilities Services Act.
