Alaska Integrated Employment Initiative (AIDD PIE)

Alaska

A consortium of partners consisting of the Governor’s Council on Disabilities and Special Education (lead entity), the Division of Senior and Disabilities Services (State I/DD agency), the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, the Department of Education and Early Development, Disability Law Center of Alaska, and the Center for Human Development will develop sustainable strategies to increase the employment of youth and young adults with I/DD. The project intends to increase the percent of youth and young adults served by DVR from 20% to 25%; 2) increase hours worked by DVR participants with I/DD from 13 to 20 hours per week (comparable to other youth with disabilities); and 3) double the number of youth and young adults with I/DD served by SDS who are employed or self-employed from 139-278.
