How do I seek compensation through the CPP? Seeking compensation through the CPP for the first time is a two-step process. First, each applicant seeking compensation must submit a Petition to Participate within the timeframe specified in the regulation.
This is a one-time only requirement. That is, once the Department approves the Petition to Participate, as long as the information it contains remains true and correct, you will not be required to submit future Petitions to Participate.
Then, after you have an approved Petition to Participate, if you would like to apply for an award, you must submit an Application for an Advocacy Award within the time frame specified in the regulation 28 CCR d.
