NTAR issued a Brief entitled,
"Integrating Job Opportunities for People with Disabilities into State and Regional Economic and Workforce Development Strategies,"
Across the nation, state and regional economic and workforce development officials have begun to work together more systematically and strategically in an effort to better address the economic needs of a geographical area, including creating jobs for local residents.

This Brief offers some background on recent trends in economic and workforce development strategies, and highlights two regions that have been piloting initiatives to include opportunities for people with disabilities in their regional activities.
