On August 17, ANCOR submitted comments (see below) to the Advisory Committee on Increasing Competitive Integrated Employment for Individuals with Disabilities (ACICIEID). The committee was formed as part of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), tasked to develop recommendations for the Administration on ways to increase competitive, integrated employment for people with disabilities. The committee will meet a final time, on August 29, to formally unveil its final report. The committee published a draft final report earlier this month, and asked for comments on it. (See WICs article, "WIOA Advisory Committee Holds Final Meeting, Releases Draft Final Report," July 29, 2016.)
