Children's Residential Project and Intermediate Care Facility for Developmentally Disabled

Children’s Residential Project programs consist of an SED-approved private school, also known as an 853 School, and an OPWDD-certified residential facility, known as an Intermediate Care Facility for Developmentally Disabled (ICF/DD). As a result of this joint State agency involvement, admission to CRP programs is limited to those children identified through the education system as needing educational/residential services who also meet the residential eligibility criteria for the ICF/DD established by OPWDD.
