Project CASE “Creating Access to Successful Employment”

Kentucky

“Project CASE in Kentucky intends to increase participation in Career Pathways for individuals with disabilities. Under Project CASE, we will build and expand on the current Career Pathways program components that align to the Kentucky Workforce Investment Board’s targeted sectors of Information Technology, Manufacturing and Industrial Technology, and Healthcare/Nursing & Allied Health, and examine what specific strategies or mix of strategies are most effective in serving individuals with disabilities.

The grant will provide direct services to individuals in the 7 counties of Metro Louisville (KentuckianaWorks) and more rural 23 counties of Eastern Kentucky (Eastern Kentucky Concentrated Employment Program- EKCEP).  This project will address new levels of outreach, and flexible and innovative training and postsecondary approaches for both students and youth.”
