Ohio Governor Mike DeWine meets with students at the OOD Youth Leadership
Forum on July 16.

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine's budget for fiscal years 2020-2021, signed into
law this week, supports Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities (OOD) in
empowering Ohioans with disabilities through employment, disability
determinations, and independence. Demonstrating a strong commitment to
investing in Ohioans with disabilities to ensure that they are not left
behind, the budget represents a state investment of $17.4 million in General
Revenue Funds in the first year and $18.9 million in the second year (an
eight percent increase each year) of the biennium.

For each dollar of state investment, OOD draws down an additional $3.69 in
federal vocational rehabilitation grant funds to support our efforts in
Ohio. The budget strengthens current OOD programs by developing new patterns
of service to help meet the employment needs of all Ohioans with
disabilities.

Work is critical to an individual's recovery. Governor Mike DeWine's budget
supports the agency's efforts to address Ohio's mental health and substance
use disorder public health crisis. OOD will replicate a successful model
established in partnership with the Butler County Mental Health and
Addiction Recovery Services Board and Common Pleas Judge Keith Spaeth's drug
court. In this model, OOD embeds a vocational rehabilitation (VR) counselor
as an active member of the drug court team to ensure the individual gets a
job.

OOD is partnering with the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction
Services and the Supreme Court of Ohio to target the expansion. A VR
counselor will be immersed in six additional drug courts in fiscal year 2020
and seven additional drug courts in 2021.

dedicated vocational rehabilitation counselor at each school. These new
counselors will provide students with vocational counseling, training, and
job placement assistance to help them transition to college and/or
employment after graduation.

Lou Maynus, superintendent of the Ohio School for the Deaf and interim
superintendent for the Ohio State School for the Blind, said "The role of
the vocational rehabilitation counselor is a critical one for the students
at both of our schools. The addition of these counselor positions at each
school will help us ensure our students are prepared for successful,
rewarding pathways after high school graduation."

The budget will also build upon an existing partnership between OOD and the
Ohio Department of Education: the Ohio Transition Support Partnership, which
allows students with disabilities to engage in career exploration and skill
development at a younger age. OOD counselors educate parents, teachers, and
students with disabilities on the importance of work. Together they develop
strategies and provide services such as work experiences, job placement, and
on-the-job supports to ensure students secure employment or transition to
post-secondary education after graduation.

If you have a child, 14 years of age or older with a disability, reach out
to OOD for more information on how we can help your child with career
exploration, skill development, and strategies to get a job after
graduation. To find out more, go to

<https://content.govdelivery.com/attachments/fancy_images/OHOOD/2019/07/2701

The budget invests in funding for direct services that will ensure students
with disabilities working toward a credential or college degree earn higher
wages and meet the demands of tomorrow's labor market. This will be
accomplished through an innovative partnership between OOD, Ohio's state
college and university system, the Ohio Department of Higher Education, and
Ohio businesses. These funds will support a total of 15 vocational
rehabilitation counselors that will be immersed in the disability services
offices within colleges to assist students with disabilities with additional
supports such as job placement, technology, and internships. OOD is also
expanding its business relations team to connect college students with
disabilities to internship and permanent employment opportunities.
Approximately 1,500 students will be served annually.

/2019-03d> Executive Order (2019-03D), signed just moments after being sworn
into office, established Ohio as a Disability Inclusion State and Model
Employer of Individuals with Disabilities. The order requires all state
agencies to increase recruitment, hiring, and advancement of people with
disabilities.

To support this effort, the budget allows OOD to develop an internship
program for students and adults with disabilities to assist them in gaining
access to state government employment. The Governor's budget will support
approximately 40 internship opportunities annually for individuals with
disabilities served by OOD to create a strong recruitment pipeline for
permanent employment.

Collectively, the budget initiatives allow OOD to serve approximately 4,000
more individuals with disabilities throughout Ohio. OOD counselors will
purchase approximately $10 million more in services from more than 360
service provider partners throughout the state. OOD will also assist more
businesses in recruiting new employees and strengthening diversity and
inclusion in the workplace.

Changes to the Vocational Rehabilitation Fee Schedule


 
<https://content.govdelivery.com/attachments/fancy_images/OHOOD/2019/07/2701
858/2756329/fee-schedule_crop.jpg> 

OOD partners with more than 360 providers across the state to serve
individuals with disabilities who qualify for vocational rehabilitation
services. The vocational rehabilitation (VR) fee schedule, which establishes
standardized service definitions and requirements as well as rates for
payment for services, is designed to ensure the consistent delivery of
quality services to individuals with disabilities statewide.

Since last fall, OOD and service providers have worked together to identify
changes to the VR fee schedule that will support providers to deliver the
highest quality of service.  This collaborative process has resulted in
significant feedback from providers being incorporated into the proposed fee
schedule.

The proposed changes include an across-the-board increase in rates of 6.5
percent except for job development services, which will be increased by 8
percent.  Several additional enhancements are proposed such as changes in
the calculation of group rates for summer youth work services and new
placement fees for individuals who get jobs while participating in other VR
services.  These changes will assist providers in recruiting and retaining
qualified staff to provide quality services to individuals with
disabilities.

"Providers have shared their needs with us, and we have listened," said
Susan Pugh, Deputy Director of the Bureau of Vocational Rehabilitation.
"Through our discussions and working collaboratively, we were able to
identify and prioritize the changes to the fee schedule that will have the
greatest impact on outcomes for those we serve."

Ohio's Common Sense Initiative has completed their review of the proposed
changes, and the new rule has been submitted Joint Committee for
Administrative Rule Review. OOD will conduct a public hearing on the fee
schedule on Monday, August 5, 2019.  Please find additional information
