Revenue for the Franklin County Board of Developmental Disabilities comes from local, state and federal sources. Similar to public schools, most services are provided at no cost, however, some services are provided on a sliding fee scale basis based upon the individual or family’s ability to pay.

Local funds are generated from property tax levies that are voted on by voters in Franklin County, Ohio. These funds help to support all programs. Local dollars are stretched when used as match to access additional federal funds.

State funds come from the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities and the Ohio Department of Education. These state departments have rules and regulations to ensure quality services and, in turn, provide some funding to support these services.

Federal funds primarily come from the Medicaid program. Some funds are paid directly to the Board as a provider of services and some are paid from the State to providers based on authorization from the Franklin County Board of Developmental Disabilities.

The Franklin County Board of Developmental Disabilities strives to provide stability in finances with budgeting for the long term so that levy commitments are met. Stability in finances leads to long term stability in services for individuals and their families and stability in employment for staff.
