Learn more about this funding opportunity

The Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) at the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has announced a funding opportunity for $1.5 million to support the first year of a cooperative agreement for a policy development center focused on advancing employment opportunities and outcomes for disabled youth. The funding will support research, engage with the workforce system and its partners, and identify effective policies and practices that support disabled youth employment. It will also help provide resources and training to help support their transition to adulthood.

The funding will continue the work of the Center for Advancing Policy on Employment for Youth. DOL created the center in 2019 to improve employment outcomes for youth and young adults with disabilities by helping states expand their delivery of youth services and strengthening workforce systems.

DOL anticipates the availability of $7.5 million in funds for a five-year period, subject to federal fund availability, at $1.5 million per year.
