Policies and Programs

"This annual report “outlines the activities undertaken by the Task Force during the first full year of operation. It reflects the information that has been gathered by the Task Force to date as well as outlines the recommendations developed by the Task Force during a strategic planning meeting held in April 2011. The Task Force is committed to addressing the major issues impacting employment and economic self-sufficiency for people with disabilities in Illinois and collaborating with Illinois leaders to do this. To that end, the task force is proposing several initiatives that are aimed to begin the necessary dialogues for changing the way that existing employment programs are operated and the policies and procedures that govern them.”
