The committed involvement of OPWDD employees in the many reforms that have occurred—and which continue to take place today—are largely responsible for our collective success now and in the future.

This page, or “portal” as it is known, is meant to help visitors navigate our website and easily access the most common materials and information sought by OPWDD’s nearly 23,000 employees.

Here you can always find information about training programs and other opportunities, as well as OPWDD’s revamped career opportunity page.

We welcome feedback and suggestions, which may occur a number of different ways, including through an employees’ chain of command, or via email at
