Nebraska VR received a five-year Career Pathways for Individuals with Disabilities grant in 2015 from the Rehabilitation Service Administration. This Career Pathways Advancement Project uses an “upskill/backfill” approach to support past VR clients to advance in their careers, and fill the open position with another qualified VR client. The targeted outcomes include increasing the weekly wages and employer-provided benefits for individuals obtaining competitive integrated employment in five targeted high- demand sectors. Results from the evaluation of this model demonstration conducted by the Institute for Community Inclusion will be presented and discussed.
