Welcome

LeadingAge Ohio is a nonprofit trade association that represents approximately 500 long-term care organizations and hospices, as well as those providing ancillary health care and housing services, in more than 150 Ohio towns and cities.

The leadership team is composed of the Board of Directors, including executive committee officers; and Public Policy Congress delegates, who represent LeadingAge Ohio at our national organization. Strategic committees and special interest groups comprised of members from around the state help to develop and oversee governing policies and programs.

Senate Sub Bill Released: Funding Maintained for NFs and HCBS

In a press conference, Senate President Larry Obhof stated, “The bill maintains tax cuts and reforms from previous budget cycles and does not dip into the Rainy Day Fund .” The Senate looked to close the gap of what they believe is a projected budget shortfall of over $1 billion.
