Using a combination of federal block grant funds, state general funds and collaborative agreements with the Department of Vocational Rehabilitation, the department coordinates Supported Employment for consumers in several regions of the state.

Supported Employment programs offer vocational options to persons who have been unable to secure jobs as a result of physical or psychiatric conditions. The Supported Employment program staff will develop jobs individualized to the consumer's needs and desires and work availability in the region.

After placing a consumer in a job, the program will continue to support the consumer on the job according to his or her needs and desires. Consumers work as little as 2 hours or as much as 32 hours per week, with a range in monetary return from volunteer work to above minimum wage with benefits packages.
