POPULATION SERVED: Jobseekers with physical or psychological disabilities.



BRIEF DESCRIPTION: The IN Program's primary goals are to enhance and increase the value and use of the One-Stop Career Center system through implementation of the DPN service strategy; improve the One-Stop system for those with physical or psychiatric disabilities, and improve the number of people with disabilities registered and participating in WIA and Wagner-Peyser programs, as well as improving employment outcomes.


The grant will be used to fund the Indiana Navigator Program (IN Program), which includes salaries for seven employees, fringe benefits, travel, supplies, a subcontract, and other costs, such as an audit, rent, utilities, advertising, postage, copying, and consulting services.


Proposed employees include a part-time executive director, controller, bookkeeper, program director, assistant program director, and two Disability Program Navigators (DPNs), who will be responsible for facilitating One-Stop services for the disabled. The addition of these two full-time employees will give customers greater access to career planning, skill building, and placement services.


Partners include the Indiana Institute on Disability and Community, ARC of Indiana, and the Southern Indiana Center for Independent Living, as well as local community mental health centers, special education cooperatives and schools, Department of Workforce Development (One-Stop operators), vocational rehabilitation, and other community groups.


During the grant period, the IN Program plans for 100,000 to receive Wagner-Peyser services, of which 5,000 (5%) will have a disability. WIA services during the two-year period will be provided to 2,000, of which 230 (11.5%) will be disabled.




GEOGRAPHIC AREA TO BE SERVED: Indiana counties of Bartholomew, Boone, Brown, Hamilton, Hancock, Hendricks, Jackson, Jennings, Johnson, Monroe, Morgan, Owen, and Shelby
