Center Assists with Youth Training, Rehabilitation Requirements

The Education Dept.’s Office of Special Education and Rehabilitation Services will soon offer a $3 million grant for a Workforce Investment Act Continuing Education Technical Assistance Center (CFDA Number: 84.264H-01). The NOFA is expected in July with a proposed deadline in September.

State and local governments, public and private colleges and universities and nonprofits can apply for the funding. The grantee will help states meet federal laws requiring they provide vocational rehabilitation to individuals with disabilities. The grants help states meet the new WIA requirements, which provide for enhanced training for youth. Of the funds appropriated for the Training Program, 15% must be used to support the In-Service Training Program. This program is intended to assist VR state agencies in the training of state agency staff consistent with the state’s Comprehensive System of Personnel Development (CSPD).
