Tennessee Selected to Participate in 2015 as Core State for Employment First State Leadership Mentoring Program (EFSLMP)


State Policies & Initiatives: 

This [Tennessee’s selection as a Core State] clearly demonstrates the significant strides that Tennessee has made relative to the EFSLMP initiative and ODEP’s support for our State as we continue moving forward… EFSLMP works to advance Employment First, a concept to facilitate the full inclusion of people with the most significant disabilities in the workplace. EFSLMP provides support and resources to help select states align policies, regulations, and funding priorities to encourage integrated employment as the primary outcome for people with significant disabilities.
