$15 Million in Disability Employment Initiative Grants Available

The grants will better serve the needs of youths and adults with disabilities seeking employment.

The U.S. Department of Labor announced the availability of approximately $15 million in grants through the Disability Employment Initiative to state workforce agencies to develop flexible and innovative strategies to increase the participation of people with disabilities in federally funded education and training programs.

"People with disabilities have enormous contributions to make to our economy and our society, but they remain disproportionately represented among our nation's unemployed," said U.S. Secretary of Labor Thomas E. Perez. "We are working to change that by providing more training options that prepare these workers for good jobs. These grants will help build strong ladders of opportunity to the middle-class for these workers."

According to an agency news release, the grants are the sixth round of funding through the initiative, a joint program of the Employment and Training Administration and the Office of Disability Employment Policy.
