Partnerships in Employment Systems Change: The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement is to encourage state partnerships and systems change efforts that will ultimately contribute to 1) the development of policies that support competitive employment in integrated settings as the first and desired outcome for youth and young adults with developmental disabilities including intellectual disabilities; 2) the removal of systemic barriers to competitive employment in integrated settings; 3) the implementation of strategies and best practices that improve employment outcomes for youth with intellectual and developmental disabilities; and 4) enhanced statewide collaborations that can facilitate the transition process from secondary and post-secondary school, or other pre-vocational settings, to complete employment in integrated settings.
