Disability Employment Initiative (Round Four)

Virginia

As a past Round 1 grantee, VA DEI will continue to build on existing infrastructure to develop shared ownership; foster systems integration, through cross-interagency collaboration at all levels; and design access to services from a customer’s perspective. Three Disability Resource Coordinators and a DRC State Lead will facilitate the implementation of the service delivery strategies. The pilot sites will receive the services of a Ticket consultant, who has been successful at engaging Round I pilot LWIBs in the EN process and in increasing ticket activity.
