    • Ensuring that each program presented meets the RACE; and
    • Transition to any new administrator and notifying RACE of those changes.

  2. After the RACE Program Administrator has been selected, have the Administrator complete the following steps:

    • Obtain a certificate of good standing from the secretary of state; letters of reference from clients or others who are knowledgeable about the organization; or certified tax documentation.
    • Obtain past program brochures, advertisements or other related materials.
    • Complete and sign a RACE Provider Agreement

  3. When all the above information is collected:

    • Complete the RACE Provider application (you will upload the collected documents here)
    • Pay the $350 Provider fee at the end of the Provider application
    • Wait for email from RACE Program Specialist at AAVSB for program application instruction. This typically takes one week.
