Employment First State Leadership Mentoring Program FY 2016 Core State Funding Opportunity
Posted by Alexandra Kielty - On October 13, 2015 (EST)
U.S. Department of Labor Office of Disability Employment Policy has announced the availability 5 more states to participate in an Employment First State Leadership Mentoring Program with applications due October 12, 2015.
The Office of Disability Employment Policy started the Employment First State Leadership Mentoring Program (EFSLMP), a cross-disability, cross-systems change initiative, to assist states in aligning their efforts to support individuals with disabilities toward an Employment First approach. EFSLMP provides a platform for multi-disciplinary state teams to focus on implementing the Employment First approach with fidelity through the alignment of policies, coordination of resources, and updating of service delivery models to facilitate increased integrated employment options for people with the most significant disabilities.
Through an application process, states have an opportunity to become an EFSLMP Core State. In FY 2015, 15 states were awarded core state funding. In FY 2016, the existing 15 states will receive another year of core state funding, and up to five new states will be funded.
