Disability Rights Ohio returns to full operations
October 17, 2013 / shutdown
With Congress passing a continuing resolution to fund the federal government, Disability Rights Ohio (DRO) is now back to full operations. DRO had previously limited services to new clients until the 2014 federal budget was decided, which allowed the organization to assess its ongoing obligations to existing clients.
Federal protection and advocacy grants make up about 90% of DRO’s current budget. During the federal government shutdown, callers were provided referrals or brief advice and resources to support self-advocacy. If you called during this time and were told that DRO couldn’t represent you, you may want to call and ask for your case to be re-evaluated.
DRO is glad to be back in full swing and thanks everyone for their patience.
