The Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) in collaboration with the Department of Labor (DOL), Employment and Training Administration (ETA) is pleased to share information about the Disability Employment Initiative (DEI), which is jointly funded by the U.S. DOL ETA and the Office of Disability and Employment Policy. DOL has funded the DEI since 2010 to improve the education, training, and employment outcomes of youth and adults with disabilities who are unemployed, underemployed, and/or receiving Social Security disability benefits. The DEI supports extensive partnerships, collaboration, and service coordination across multiple workforce, generic, and disability systems in each state. The state vocational rehabilitation agencies are critical partners to all the DEI projects. This webinar will highlight activities from two high performing DEI projects-Delaware and Virginia-that focus on successful partnerships between the American Job Centers (formerly known as One-Stop Career Centers) and the vocational rehabilitation agencies to leverage resources to better serve persons with disabilities and improve their employment outcomes so that they can become economically self-sufficient.
