Extended Employment Program

If you have a significant disability or other barrier to employment, we may be able to help. By working with a community rehabilitation provider we may be able to provide long-term support services to help you keep your job and advance in your career via our Extended Employment (EE) Program.

We work closely with a statewide network of nationally accredited community rehabilitation programs to offer no-cost job supports for people who want to work and employers who need qualified employees. These service providers are certified annually and are required to achieve and maintain the highest levels of service standards and accountability to the people they serve.
