Community Rehabilitation Programs


What is the Community Rehabilitation Program?

The State of Ohio’s Community Rehabilitation Program (CRP) is a purchasing program mandated by the Ohio Revised Code.  CRP contracts are performed by persons with work-limiting disabilities, providing much needed job opportunities.

 

Who are CRP Suppliers?

CRP Suppliers are nonprofit organizations that employ Ohioans with work-limiting disabilities.  They provide quality, on time, products and services at a fair market price.

 

What Types of Products and Services do CRPs Provide?

CRP Suppliers provide many different types of products and services, from janitorial services and secure document destruction to office supplies and apparel.

 

 

Am I required to purchase from a CRP?

State agencies, political subdivisions, and state institutions are required by the Ohio Revised Code (125.60 through 125.6012) and the Ohio Administrative Code (125:5-3-1 and 123:5-3-12) to purchase goods and services from CRP Suppliers before all other sources.

Who Should I Contact if I Have Questions?

The Office of Procurement from Community Rehabilitation Programs (OPCRP) is part of the Ohio Department of Administrative Services.
