Expanding Equal Employment Opportunities and Economic Mobility for Individuals with Disabilities: Building "Curb Cuts to the Middle Class"

Posted by Alexandra Kielty - On February 23, 2015 (EST)

The Curb Cuts to the Middle Class Initiative ("Curb Cuts Initiative") is a Federal cross-agency effort working to increase equal employment opportunities and financial independence for individuals with disabilities, with a particular emphasis on individuals with significant disabilities. Curb cuts in the streets help make America a more accessible and inclusive nation. The Curb Cuts to the Middle Class Initiative brings the same ingenuity and commonsense solutions to ensure that workers with disabilities, like all Americans, have the opportunity to obtain and succeed in good jobs and careers. The new Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) places significant new responsibilities on several Cabinet-level agencies that have the responsibility for increasing the employment of individuals with disabilities, particularly the Department of Labor and the Department of Education. These agencies will take the primary lead in furthering various initiatives within their departments designed to advance employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities.
