What is the Personal Care Assistance (PCA) Program?

In order to maintain employment, look for employment, or participate in training for employment, some Ohioans with severe disabilities may require a personal care attendant/aide to assist them with activities of daily living (ADLs). OOD’s PCA Program provides partial reimbursement to eligible individuals so that they may hire an attendant/aide.

OOD’s PCA Program does not hire attendants/aides; rather, OOD provides the funding so that eligible individuals may hire the attendant/aide who may best meet their needs.
