A State license is required to operate as an Intermediate Care Facilities for the Developmentally Disabled (ICF/DD) facility in California. An ICF/DD means "a facility that provides 24-hour personal care, habilitation, developmental, and supportive health services to persons with developmental disabilities whose primary need is for developmental services and who have a recurring but intermittent need for skilled nursing services," pursuant to Health and Safety Code (HSC) section 1250(g).

To report a Change of Administrator, you must complete the required application packet. Refer to Title 22 California Code of Regulations (CCR) sections 76000 through 76725 for information regarding licensure requirements.
