Blended Funding Relating to Transition/Employment

A concerted effort to blend funding and strengthen partnerships relating to transition and employment.

 

My county has shown tremendous success with a blended funding model that has partnered School Districts, DVR, state and local government and individual employment providers to offer a seamless transition from school to work. Students and parents/guardians are provided direction and resources preparing them for adult services and life after school. In addition our program ensures students are getting connected to their community with long term direct supports identified, as well as the opportunity to explore their professional growth through gainfully PAID employment.
