On July 19, the Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy announced a $1.1 million grant to fund a cooperative agreement to manage and operate the National Technical Assistance and Demonstration Center on Preparing Youth with Disabilities for Employment.

The center will build capacity within and across youth service delivery systems to improve employment and postsecondary education outcomes for youth with disabilities. Areas the center will focus on are career exploration, management and planning, youth development and leadership, and professional development.
