February 12, 2016
Source: LEAD Center

The Office of Disability Employment Policy and the LEAD Center are pleased to release the fourth Employment First Technical Brief, Federal Resources Available to Support State Employment First Efforts. The four-part series is for anyone working to implement Employment First in their state, region or agency.

Technical Brief #4: Federal Resources Available to Support State Employment First Efforts, provides state governments and external stakeholders with information about available Federal funding resources and technical assistance available to further state Employment First systems change efforts. The Federal government utilizes funding vehicles such as competitive grants, direct programmatic funding, demonstration projects, pilot initiatives, and increased Federal matching funds to help state and local governments prioritize strategies that lead to competitive, integrated employment outcomes for individuals with disabilities. Funding can also be used to discourage certain practices or policies, as in the case of reduced reimbursement rates or decreased funding invested in services that lead to segregated outcomes for individuals with disabilities.

The first three briefs in the series are:

  • Technical Brief #1: Connecting the Dots: Using Federal Policy to Promote Employment First Systems-Change Efforts
  • Technical Brief #2: Federal Legal Framework that Supports Competitive, Integrated Employment Outcomes of Youth and Adults with Significant Disabilities
  • Technical Brief #3: Criteria for Performance Excellence in Employment First State Systems Change & Provider Transformation
