Integrated Resource Teams Frequently Asked Questions
Posted by Laura Gleneck - On June 29, 2015 (EST)
Disability Employment Initiative (DEI) Projects build upon the Disability Program Navigator initiative by hiring staff with expertise in disability and workforce development to serve as Disability Resource Coordinators (DRCs).
DEI Projects support extensive partnerships, collaboration and service coordination across multiple workforce, generic, and disability systems in each state. These involve state vocational rehabilitation agencies, mental health and developmental disability agencies, Medicaid Infrastructure Grant-supported activities, independent living centers, business leadership networks, and other community-based and nonprofit organizations.
As one of the seven major strategic components of the DEI, the Integrated Resource Team (IRT) model represents a strategy that a local workforce area can use to provide an increased level of support to a job seeker with a disability. The purpose of this set of frequently asked questions (FAQs) is to clarify the IRT concept and offer guidance on the potential role of a DRC in introducing the IRT approach and facilitating an IRT with an individual job seeker.
