New Project To Create 500 Jobs For Arizonans With Disabilities

Arizona

~“Governor Doug Ducey today joined The Precisionist Inc. (TPI) to announce the creation of over 500 jobs for individuals with a broad range of disabilities. Through an innovative partnership with Arizona businesses, known as the “Phoenix Precision Project,” participants in the program will receive training and employment opportunities in a broad range of fields such as software development, database analytics, accounting, data entry and more.

The program is a collaboration between the Governor’s Office, TPI, Salt River Project, the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce, the Greater Phoenix Economic Council (GPEC) and First Place® AZ, a Phoenix community offering housing, education and training to adults with autism. It is expected to create more than 500 Arizona jobs for adults with autism and other special abilities within the next three to five years—and about 1,000 total by 2025.”
