DisAbility Online

Welcome to the Employment & Training Administration's Disabilities Program home page, DisAbility Online. The Disabilities Program develops and implements workforce disability policy and program initiatives to address structural, programmatic, and systemic employment challenges of persons with disabilities and multiple challenges to employment. It provides technical assistance to the public workforce system on how to expand the capacity of the workforce system to serve persons with disabilities. ETA administers the Disability Employment Initiative (DEI) to improve the education, training, and employment opportunities and outcomes of persons with disabilities who are unemployed, underemployed, and/or receiving Social Security disability benefits.

Disability and Employment Community of Practice

The Disability and Employment Community of Practice is an online learning destination for public workforce system staff and partners, jobseekers, community-based organizations, grantees, and the business sector, who provide services and programs to people with disabilities and/or other challenges to employment. It is a "one-stop-shop" venue for workforce practitioners to find or share high quality information about how to better provide integrated, seamless, and accessible services and programs to people with disabilities and/or other challenges to employment.
