The State of Employment First in Indiana

Indiana

~~“For the last two years IN-APSE has been working with Indiana legislators, state entities, providers, and individuals with disabilities to create Employment first legislation. This law would make it the policy of the state is to promote competitive and integrated employment, including self-employment, as the first and preferred option when providing services to individuals with disabilities who are of working age.

In March 2016, The Indiana Senate voted approval to Senate Resolution 39 to establish a study group on Employment First. Exciting News!! The Study Group was approved in May thanks to all of your help in reaching out  to the Indiana House and Senate Leadership to let them know you support a study group to make sure Indiana has a plan for community employment for Hoosiers with Disabilities.”
