Ohio Braces for Impact of Budget

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Service providers and advocates for Ohioans with disabilities still are sorting through the details of the state's new two-year budget to see how budget cuts will affect the lives of some of the state's most vulnerable citizens. As the budget is implemented, significant changes to services are expected across the board to programs which help individuals with disabilities.
Some of the cuts include reductions to the Help Me Grow program, which provides developmental services for children from birth through age 3, reductions in subsidies to county boards of developmental disabilities, and education cuts that will impact special-education programs.
