The comment period deadline for the proposed Transportation (Trip) rates has been extended from July 23, 2018 to July 30, 2018. Please submit your comments on the proposed Transportation (per trip) fee schedule only to the Office of Developmental Programs’ rate-setting mailbox.

A webinar providing additional information is available on MyODP and can be found here (login with a user profile or as a guest is necessary).
