DODD Director Kim Hauck has identified these topics for 2022 County Board Member Training. 

  • Statewide Updates from Director Kim Hauck
  • Multi-System Youth (MSY) Initiatives and OhioRISE

Totals approximately 20 minutes.

Multi-system youth refers to children, teenagers, and young adults who have intensive and complex needs that cannot be met by a single state agency. Multi-system youth have two or more significant challenges, including developmental disabilities, mental illness, drug or alcohol addiction, or severe trauma. Supporting multi-system youth and their families is only possible through the cooperation between families, state and community agencies, educators, providers, and county boards.

Five-Year Forecasting Requirement

Totals approximately 60 minutes.

County boards of developmental disabilities must submit a five-year projection of revenues and expenditures to DODD before April 1. 

These projections are critical to ensuring the long-term financial sustainability of the developmental disabilities service system. DODD and county boards are funding partners for a system that serves more than 90,000 Ohioans with developmental disabilities. The financial failure of any county board has the potential to produce catastrophic consequences throughout the developmental disabilities service system that ultimately impact the people served.
