Employment First Partnership FFY 18 Annual Report


State Policies & Initiatives: 

~~“Since implementation in Federal Fiscal Year 2014, the Employment First Partnership between Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities (OOD) and the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD) has improved competitive integrated employment outcomes for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities who want to work in their community. As a result of the success, resources dedicated to helping adults with developmental disabilities find jobs have doubled since 2013. This growth increased capacity from 900 people being served to 1,800 people with developmental disabilities being served annually.

In addition, the partnership has five certified work incentive consultants who are dedicated to provide work incentive planning and counseling services to all people served through the Employment First Partnership receiving federal, state, and local benefits.”
