State Policies & Initiatives: 
Training/Capacity Building

~~“To enhance this  supported  employment  (SE)  initiative,  DelCo  created  a  Reinvestment  Plan  to  hire  a  consultant  who  assisted  with  developing  and  delivering  a  systemic  Supported Employment training and funds for providers to hire a .5 FTE Certified Peer Specialist (CPS) to assist with SE implementation.  All contracted provider agencies were offered a one-time, monetary incentive for hiring a CPS in a vacant, non-billable position (e.g.,  residential  specialist)  within  their  agency  to  promote  the  mindset  that  “work  is  everyone’s business.”
