DE Pathways to Employment


State Policies & Initiatives: 

“Pathways to Employment, a program now under development in Delaware, is designed to support low-income persons with disabilities who wish to work. The program is a result of an initiative launched by Governor Jack Markell while Chairman of the National Governors Association to improve employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities."

“In February 2014, Delaware submitted an application to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services for a 1915(i) Medicaid State Plan amendment to establish the Pathways program. This amendment will enable the State to provide employment supports to qualified individuals. In its initial phase, Pathways to Employment will target teens and young adults (aged 14 to 25) with disabilities to help them get prepared for and find jobs."

“Pathways to Employment is expected to begin operation in Spring 2015.”
