Phone: (541) 928-0241

Proposed Award Amount: $698,820

Community Served: Statewide, Oregon

Project Emphasis: People with disabilities.

Summary Paragraph: Building on the successes of the Work Incentives Grant awarded in 2001, Work Incentives for Rural Oregonians will directly serve 25 out of Oregons 36 counties and two of the seven Local Areas. Staff training and development, however, will be statewide. In addition to comprehensive training, this grant would provide subgrants to One Stops for outreach and marketing activities as well as for adaptive and assistive new technologies. In terms of systemic change, the grant would increase the presence of partners who serve people with disabilities in the integrated One Stop environment, including the closer alignment of Vocational Rehabilitation and the Commission for the Blind.

Partnerships: The Oregon Consortium & Oregon Workforce Alliance (TOC/OWA) is the lead applicant for a statewide partnership that includes Oregons Department of Human Services, The Job Council, 17 One Stops and affiliate sites, partners in business and industry, such as the Oregon Business Leadership Network, the Employment Capability Access Network, Senior and Disabled Services, Department of Community Colleges, and several CBOs which serve the disabled.
