On September 25-26, five county board of
DD leaders and two OACB staffers met with
members of Ohio's federal congressional
delegation to discuss board policy priorities
ahead of the 2020 general election. In a full
day of Hill meetings, advocates discussed
Medicaid funding, the DSP shortage, and more
with Ohio’s national lawmakers.
Thanks to the hundreds of DD support
professionals who took part in OACB’s
latest SSA Forum on Aug. 21 in Columbus!

On Aug. 20, leaders from Ohio's DD support
system and state legislature gathered at the
Ohio Statehouse in Columbus to mark the
inclusion of a direct support professional (DSP)
wage increase in the recently passed state
budget bill. This marks the first meaningful wage
increase for DSPs in more than a decade.
