MA Disability Employment Initiative
The Disability Employment Initiative (DEI) is a three-year federal grant program that improves education, training, employment opportunities, and employment outcomes for youth and adults with disabilities who are unemployed, underemployed, and/or receiving Social Security disability benefits. In 2012, Massachusetts was awarded a Round 3 DEI grant from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment Training Administration.
