Employer Engagement

Award amount: $65,000 per year 

Duration: 2022 - 2024

Grantee: Disability:IN Ohio

Council staff contact: Leslie Connelly

Goal of Grant: Employers do not know how to find, keep and advance employees with disabilities in their workplace. In addition, many service providers do not know how to work with employers to help them support employees with disabilities. The Employer Engagement grant will help employees with disabilities in the workplace by educating employers, including federal contractors, on inclusion strategies and best practices; connecting employers and disability providers; and mentoring college students with disabilities.
