For Immediate Release From OSERS!

States eligible to compete for Subminimum Wage to Competitive Integrated Employment Grants totaling $167 million

Today, the U.S. Department of Education’s Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) https://rsa.ed.gov/?utm_content=&utm_mediu... released the notice inviting applications for the Subminimum Wage to Competitive Integrated Employment (SWTCIE) demonstration project, aimed at increasing access for people with disabilities to jobs that pay good wages.

The SWTCIE project is the largest discretionary grant administered by RSA, with $167 million available to State Vocational Rehabilitation agencies and their partners.

“Economic security should be available to all Americans,” said U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona. “Providing individuals with disabilities with a high-quality education and the services that they need to thrive will result in real pay for real jobs, empowering them and leading to greater social and economic inclusion.”
