WIOA

SELN Spring 2016 Special Event 
WIOA: Opportunities and Challenges 
Session 1: Impact on State Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Agencies
Airing date: May 10, 2016

The event provided an update on implementation, with a focus on enhanced partnerships between state intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) systems and state vocational rehabilitation (VR) agencies, and how these partnerships can increase employment results. As most individuals earning sub-minimum wage are supported by state IDD agencies, we discussed how Section 511, which sets limitations on sub-minimum wage, can be used as part of overall systems change efforts to expand employment opportunities and reduce reliance on facility-based services and sub-minimum wage. A major portion of the event addressed implementation of Section 511 including the new restrictions on use of sub-minimum wage under WIOA.
