Disability Employment Initiative Project Leads: Tools and Resources
The purpose of the Disability Employment Initiative (DEI) is to expand the capacity of American Job Centers (AJCs), also known as One-Stop Centers, to promote the use of existing career pathways to serve:
- adults (ages 18 and older) with visible, non-visible, and significant disabilities, including those who have acquired disabilities in adulthood; and
- youth (ages 14-24) with visible, non-visible, and significant disabilities, including those who have chronic health conditions. DEI projects focus on improvements needed to make existing career pathways systems fully inclusive of and accessible to individuals with disabilities.
