Employment First in Colorado
Employment First in Colorado means:
- All people with disabilities have opportunities to work and grow in their careers
- Employment in the general workforce should be the first and preferred option for working age individuals with disabilities, regardless of level of disability, receiving assistance from publicly funded systems
- State and local systems change initiatives result in real jobs for real pay for people with disabilities
One of the Colorado Employment First Initiatives is ensuring professionals who are actively providing Individualized Supported Employment services through Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) or Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Medicaid Waivers have the training and/or certification required and can be reimbursed for that training and/or certification.
