Federal Grant Provides Funds for States' Employment First Initiatives

April 6, 2012

On April 2, Assistant Secretary of Labor for Disability Employment Policy Kathy Martinez held a teleconference to discuss the Employment First State Leadership Mentor Program.


The program is a Department of Labor grants initiative that aims to facilitate the full inclusion of people with significant disabilities in employment. Iowa, Oregon and Tennessee will each receive $100,000 in the first round of grants.
