Summit DD recognizes that the COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the ability of providers to deliver services across Summit County. From restricting the ability to provide services in some cases, to quickly having to respond to ODH orders and multiple DODD communications which included new protocols, to having to ask staff to potentially put themselves at risk to ensure the health and safety of people served. There was never a question that providers would meet the challenges of this current time. However, we recognize it has not been easy and has put a serious strain on your organization. As a result, Summit DD would like to offer some financial assistance in the form of grants to providers that offer day array and NMT services.
Please copy and paste the following two questions into and email and send your answers back to Gretchen Fiocca at email@example.com by 4:00 p.m., Friday September 11, 2020.
- Please identify the number of unduplicated individuals associated with Summit DD that the agency you represent supported in Day Array and NMT services during the month of February.
- Identify the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the organizations budget.
Funds awarded can be used to support fixed costs (such as vehicle leases and loans), items purchased to provide services in accordance with Ohio Department of Health orders (dividers, PPE, cleaning services/supplies), rent or other building related costs. These funds cannot be used to cover or enhance wages.
Providers will be awarded funds based on the number of individuals served and percentage of overall day and NMT services provided in Summit County. Providers can receive up to $250 dollars per person.
A provider must be certified and in good standing with the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities to qualify for these funds.
Thank you for your commitment and dedication to people served in Summit County
