Project description: The Ohio DD Council’s Five-Year State Plan Public Survey identified two of the biggest issues for people with disabilities to live the life they want to live. These issues were (1) finding a job or getting a better job or more money and (2) understanding how to get employment services. The Council will fund several projects through the 2022-2026 State Plan period to increase the knowledge of and access to employment related resources, technology, and programs for individuals with disabilities, family members and service providers.
