Projects of National Significance: Community Collaborations for Employment Program

Funding Agency:
Department of Health and Human Services

NOTE: This is a Forecasted Opportunity.


ACL will make awards under the Community Collaborations for Employment Program to fund broad stakeholder collaborations in distinct communities that will increase their capacity to facilitate transition of youth with developmental disabilities between schools and the community. Grantees and their partners will work to reduce the complexity of available services, increase the smooth exchange among the various supportive programs, eliminate unnecessary duplication, create tools to increase consistency across service agencies, and ultimately expand and strengthen the services available to youth with developmental disabilities and their families. The goal will be to optimize opportunities for youth with developmental disabilities for competitive integrated employment (CIE), successful postsecondary education without remediation, and independent living. This project will require that a broad range of community partners be integrally involved in all aspects of the grant from pre-application planning and design through implementation:
