The project is geared toward increasing physical and programmatic to One-Stop services for participants with disabilities. Enhancing the awareness of disability issues for One-Stop Career Center staff has also been identified as a goal. The project will focus on delivering more comprehensive and customized employment services for participants with disabilities through customer empowerment. Computer training is one of the occupational training services that will be offered to participants.

The grant focuses on two target populations: Social Security Disability Program(s) recipients and young adults transitioning from school to adult life, aged 18-21. The average wage goal of participants in the project is $10 per hour. The first year of the project aims to serve 150 participants from 2 One-Stops, placing 98 out of those 150 participants. Employment retention will tracked at 6 & 12 months intervals. Ultimately, these efforts will be replicated in the other 4 One-Stops later in the project.
