“Iowa Department of Human Services (DHS) has been keenly focused on improving opportunities for Iowans with disabilities to become employed in quality jobs in Iowa communities since 2000 when first awarded a Medicaid Infrastructure Grant (MIG), a federal program providing financial assistance to states to facilitate the competitive employment of people with disabilities. Iowa’s Mental Health and Disability Services (MHDS) and Iowa’s Medicaid Enterprise (IME), both divisions of DHS, have been working together along with their stakeholders, to improve employment outcomes for individuals with disabilities with a particular focus on individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) in Iowa.”
