As has been heavily publicized in previous issues of The Source, two of the biggest budget priorities for LeadingAge Ohio in 2019 were to secure meaningful increases to the Ohio Assisted Living Waiver and PASSPORT programs. Ohio’s final budget bill included a 3.25% increase to both programs, short of the 5.1% originally intended by the legislature.
