The Fiscal Year 2018-19 State Budget process has begun, and Disability Rights Ohio is monitoring the budget process and analyzing the budget language for its impact on people with disabilities. Some key state agencies include the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities, the Ohio Department of Education, the Ohio Department of Medicaid, the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, and Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities. DRO will be providing resources on this page throughout the budget process.
