What are the Regional Centers for Workforce Transformation (RCWT)? What do they do?
The RCWT are regional collaborations that were established in 2013 with the mission of advancing the practice of the NYS Code of Ethics and the Core Competencies among the state’s Direct Support Professionals and to assist agencies in building DSP capacity in the changing service landscape within the field. They are coordinated by the NYS Association of Community and Residential Agencies (NYSACRA) through funding provided by NYS Office for People With Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD).
