Central Point of Coordination (CPC)

The Central Point of Coordination (CPC) is designated as the "single entry point" for persons with disabilities seeking funding from Hardin County's MH/MR/DD Services Fund. The Community Services Director serves as the CPC Administrator. Hardin County's Mental Health/Developmental Policies seek to provide individualized supports that assure choice, empowerment, and community integration for persons with mental illness, mental retardation, or other developmental disabilities, while effectively managing costs.

The CPC process includes determining eligibility, assisting with referrals to service providers, monitoring services, tracking all service costs, and establishing a quality assurance program.
