Eligibility and Intake


To receive services funded or provided by the Lorain County Board of Developmental Disabilities (LCBDD), individuals participate in the eligibility and intake process. Individuals must reside or plan to reside in Lorain County to begin the eligibility process. (NOTE: Eligibility cannot be finalized until individual is a resident.) 


Services through the LCBDD are intended for Lorain County residents. Under some limited circumstances out-of-county residents may receive services through the agency, provided that 100% of associated costs are covered by the individual or sponsoring agency.


For your convenience, the information related to eligibility and intake is described on separate tabs by age category with the exception of in-home services and residential placement, which are discussed on an additional tab.
