Federally funded demonstration projects in five states will help prepare students with disabilities for post-secondary education and competitive employment.
The U.S. Department of Education’s Disability Innovation Fund Program is awarding $39 million to state agencies in California, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts and Vermont to provide work-based learning experiences.
States will partner with vocational rehabilitation programs, local school districts and other organizations to implement evidence-based, work-based learning models to help break down barriers to employment for students with disabilities. The projects will be assessed on the degree to which they help students obtain paid, competitive employment or enroll in post-secondary education or training.
