Burton Blatt Institute Awarded $4.7 Million for Disability Learning Consortium

October 16, 2008

The Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) of the U.S. Department of Education has awarded a $4.7 million, five-year grant to the Burton Blatt Institute (BBI) of Syracuse University to manage the Region IV Technical Assistance and Continuing Education (TACE) Learning Consortium in eight southeastern states: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.

The consortium is a collaboration of the Disability Business and Technical Assistance Center's (DBTAC) regional Southeast ADA Center, managed by BBI, and nationally recognized state vocational rehabilitation (VR) administrators, educators, rehabilitation providers, researchers, self-advocates and employers. The consortium will implement new ways of meeting the employment objectives of VR customers across the full spectrum of disabilities.
