There are more than 40 of these agencies that provide direct services to Licking County residents with developmental disabilities.
Individuals and families have the right to choose the provider agency that best meets their needs. A combination of local levy funds from LCBDD and state and federal dollars are used to pay for these services. Agency providers are certified through the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD). However, LCBDD also has a Provider Support team that is dedicated to supporting providers in Licking County.

Support for agency providers:
LCBDD’s Provider Support team provides a variety of supports for agency providers.
LCBDD facilitates The Excellence Network (TEN) — a group of agency providers that meets monthly to allow members to learn about and discuss issues affecting their companies. If you would like to learn more about The Excellence Network (TEN), please click here.
As an additional way to support providers, the Provider Support team routinely sends e-mail newsletters with items of interest to providers, including rule updates, training opportunities, and more. If you would like to be added to the mailing list, please contact David McManus, Provider Support Coordinator.
