How do I apply for services through OPWDD? Can I receive these services immediately if I am eligible?

We will set up an interview with you and obtain the necessary information needed to submit an eligibility packet to Sunmount DDSO (Developmental Disabilities Service Office). They determine if a person is eligible for the OMRDD services.
On many occasions, there are waiting lists for certain services, due to the great need for them. We do our very best to answer requests in a timely manner.
