InterAgency Council welcomes applications for membership by newly emerging provider agencies. IAC wishes to encourage new developing providers - particularly those from the minority and inner-city communities - to take advantage of the benefits of collaboration with their colleagues in the disability community, and technical assistance from the IAC staff. IAC has therefore instituted a program of reduced and graduated membership fees for these new providers.
The Program for Emerging Providers(PEP) is available to all newly developing provider agencies - as well as to those more experienced minority social service providers who are new to the developmental disabilities field - who provide family support services and/or Medicaid Service Coordination (MSC) only. During the provider's participation in the PEP program, dues are calculated using the Associate Member rate as a minimum dues amount. As the provider's budget and resources grow, the dues would gradually increase to the regular minimum dues amount.
