MDOD named SSI Youth Solutions
The U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) announced funding awards under its Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Youth Solutions initiative, which aims to identify and evaluate strategies for improving employment outcomes for young adults from ages 14 to 24 who apply for or receive SSI. MDOD is one of the twelve recipients receiving the award. Jade Gingerich, Employment Policy Director at MDOD, is the lead on this project.
The award recipients, including MDOD, will draft their policy ideas this spring and will produce final papers for ODEP and present their recommendations at a conference in Washington, D.C., in early 2021.
