Value of PWD (Vocational Apprenticeship/Legislature Utilizing Employment of People with Disabilities)

Public Policy Project

The Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities’ Apprenticeship Program finds employment and internships for people with disabilities with the executive branch of government. The focus of the program has been limited to placement into cabinet agencies.

The Ohio Developmental Disabilities Council wants to expand the program to include employment and internship opportunities in the Ohio Legislature. 

The grant will find people with disabilities who have skills or can receive skills training that would allow them to work in the legislature. The grant will also work with the legislature and legislative agencies to find out where people with disabilities might be able to work.

Grantee: Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities
Amount: $50,000
