Revenues received by the Perry County Board of Developmental Disabilities (PCBDD) come from local, state, and federal sources. All services offered by PCBDD are provided at no cost, except as required by state rule.
The majority of PCBDD’s operating revenue comes from local funding sources. Property tax levies supported by Perry County voters provide about 97% of our local funding and are PCBDD’s single largest revenue source. Levy funding can be used to support all programs and services. TANF, provided by Perry County Department of Job & Family Services, is another local funding source. It is used to support children’s programs, like The Academy for Leadership Abilities®, summer camp, and home-based services for children and their families.
A small amount of state funding is provided by the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD) and Ohio Department of Health. State rules and regulations govern the use of these funds.
Federal funding primarily comes from Medicaid programs and is PCBDD’s second largest funding source. The use of Medicaid funds is also governed by various rules and regulations.
The Perry County Board of Developmental Disabilities strives for the best stewardship of our resources to ensure long-term sustainability of programs and services that will allow us to promote abilities and enrich lives of Perry County residents for years to come.
