Front Line DEI Resources
These resources are designed to support the daily work of DEI grantees. The DEI strategies are implemented by Disability Resource Coordinators (DRCs) who are front line professional employment counselors with expertise and training in working with people with disabilities as well as effecting systems change within the American Job Centers. The DRCs are overseen by DEI State Project Leads who submit quarterly reports on their progress.
