Michigan awarded training to improve disability employment opportunities

LANSING, — Michigan has been chosen to receive federal assistance and training to help implement its Employment First strategy, working to improve competitive integrated employment opportunities for Michiganders with disabilities.

The assistance comes from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy as part of its Employment First State Leadership Mentoring Program. Michigan received two designations from ODEP, providing the state with 300 hours of onsite and virtual assistance.

In 2015, Lt. Gov. Calley signed an executive order that created Employment First in Michigan.. He serves as the sponsor for the state’s effort. — R.S.
