EMPLOYERS

ELIGIBLE FOR

JOB TRAINING

PROGRAM

FUNDING

By Shirley Raun

Funding through the American Recovery and

Reinvestment Act is available to employers to

help offset the costs of providing on-the-job

training (OJT) to qualified job seekers who

are eligible for Department of Rehabilitation

services. The Department assists people

who have disabilities to become employed.

These qualified individuals are seeking

job opportunities that reflect the entire

professional and occupational spectrum of our

communities.

The amount of the training reimbursement

and the length of training are individualized,

depending on the complexity of the work and

how much the individual needs to learn on

the job. The Department client is hired as an

employee of the business during the OJT. It

is expected that if the individual does well, s/

he will be retained as a regular employee upon

completion of the OJT.

No-Cost Resources for Businesses

The Department offers disability awareness

training and consultation to businesses for

disability accommodations. This includes

technical support and resources to assess

the needs of a newly hired employee with a

disability or an existing employee who acquires

a disability that affects employment.
