this Agreement.

giving of false, misleading or inaccurate information in order 
to obtain services from the director may result in a civil action 
or criminal charges.

appeal to the Family Support for Children with Disabilities 
Appeal Committee a decision of the director respecting the 
provision of services under this Agreement or termination of 
this Agreement within 45 days of being notified of the

guardian.
