Ohio Waiver Waiting List Improvement Survey

Ohio’s Waiver Waiting List process is being improved!
To better serve Ohioans with developmental disabilities, we have started the process of simplifying the waiting list for home and community-based waiver services as well as improving access to resources and services for individuals and families throughout Ohio.  Together, The Arc of Ohio and stakeholders representing individuals and their family members, guardians, providers, county boards of developmental disabilities and the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities are working on changes that will improve Ohio’s Waiver Waiting List process.

We invite you to take a moment to complete the following survey so we can know what parts of the Waiver Waiting List are useful to you and others across Ohio. The new process will allow people and families to inform their local county boards of developmental disabilities on what their current needs for services are so they can match the right services to the right people who need them.

Did you know there are local services that do not require waiver funding and can be provided without having to wait on a list?


We appreciate your time to let us know what you think about this important topic. The information we gather through this survey will help us communicate with everyone about the improvements to the Waiver Waiting List in the best way possible.

Deb Buccilla Receives the Ron Kozlowski Advocacy Award

Advocacy and Protective Services Inc. (APSI) created the Ron Kozlowski Advocacy Award in 2010, to honor the former APSI Director’s lifetime of advocacy efforts on behalf of individuals with developmental disabilities.

This award is given annually to a person or entity outside of APSI who has demonstrated a lifetime achievement in advocacy for individuals with developmental disabilities, and who has a long-term connection with advocacy efforts within the service system. FCBDD would like to congratulate Superintendent, Deb Buccilla for receiving this award.

APSI is a private, non-profit agency dedicated to protecting the rights of Ohioans with developmental disabilities. The agency advocates for people by helping to make their desires and needs known — especially when they cannot speak for themselves, or if they have no other advocate. APSI provides an array of guardianship and protective services to individuals, age 18 or older. The agency provides these protective services as a contract agency of DODD and serves around 3,800 adults.



You have reached the Fayette County Board of DD website. It is truly exciting to share with you the wonderful programs and services we offer. Contact us if you have any questions, or if you are interested in receiving services from us.
