Texas Training and Technical Assistance to Providers (T-TAP)


“T-TAP is a national training and technical assistance center to help community rehabilitation providers make the transition from providing segregated employment services to finding people with disabilities jobs in the community. The specific target audience is employment agencies that hold 14(c) subminimum wage certificates, which allow employers to pay people less than minimum wage and are typically used in the disability field to pay workers piece rates at sheltered workshops. Activities include online courses, satellite telecasts, regional employment forums, intensive consultation to selected agencies, and policy research. The Institute for Community Inclusion and Virginia Commonwealth University work in partnership on this project.
T-TAP [was] funded from 2002 to 2007 by the Office of Disability and Employment Policy at the U.S. Department of Labor.”
