Dollars and Sense

Employment Project

Financial knowledge lets people make financially responsible decisions. However, many people with disabilities have never managed a budget, opened a savings or checking account, used a Social Security Work Incentive or built assets. The Ohio Developmental Disabilities Council’s Five-Year State Plan Public Survey showed that understanding benefits and money was a barrier for people to live the life they want to live. 

The Council will fund a project that develops and uses a plan so people with disabilities have the financial knowledge and support they need to manage their finances.

Grantee: To be determined
Amount: $50,000
