The Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity (Commerce) announces the release of the Disability Employment Initiative (DEI) Application for Special Projects.
The goal of this program is to expand employment opportunities, growth, and satisfaction for people with disabilities.
For this round of DEI, only projects serving Local Workforce Innovation Areas 1 (Lake County), and 25 (Franklin, Jackson, Jefferson, Perry, and Williamson Counties) will be funded.
Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until funds are depleted.
The first round of funding decisions will be made in January.
