Provide intensive training and technical assistance on integrated competitive employment to individuals, agencies, and advocates across Texas.
This project aimed to leverage the expertise and knowledge of nationally recognized consultants, project staff, and local employment experts to provide training and technical assistance in integrated competitive employment to individuals, agencies, and advocates across Texas. The training was to include presentations at annual conferences, broad-topic regional training, and intensive strategic planning for conversion and development of services at the community level. Five demonstration sites had been selected to model best practices in working with individuals in employment and local systems change. Statewide initiatives for employer awareness and leadership were to be implemented.
