Connecticut

The Disability Employment Initiative (DEI) is a three-year federal grant-funded program that improves education, training, employment opportunities, and employment outcomes for people with disabilities who are unemployed, underemployed, and/or receiving Social Security disability benefits. In 2013, Connecticut was awarded a Round 4 DEI grant from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment Training Administration.
