Priority Issues

OPRA’s priority issues represent a broad range of topics that OPRA staff consistently hears from members as being significant barriers to service delivery. Priority issues often take the collaboration between OPRA and system partners like the Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD) and the county boards of developmental disabilities to devise solutions to these barriers. The list of priority issues is fluid and issues can be added and subtracted as issues arise or get resolved. Resolving priority issues can include:

  • Trainings at conferences and committees
  • Collaborating with DODD to revise administrative rules
  • Working with the Ohio legislature to revise or pass new laws
  • Technical assistance from OPRA staff
