OPWDD Template Funding
The intent of the OPWDD Template Funding is to provide reimbursement clarity to service providers who are willing to assist individuals, who meet select criteria, with living richer lives. The "template" values, eliminate the need for budget negotiation. The service provider retains the template value funding only while serving the individual. If an individual chooses to receive service from another provider, the funding follows the individual to the new service provider.
