Webinar: How Blended, Braided or Sequenced Funding Can Help Drive Employment, Equity and Inclusion
Tuesday, March 22 | 3:00pm–4:30pm ET
Register for the webinar.

The Administration for Community Living, along with federal partners at the Department of Labor, Department of Education, and the Social Security Administration, invite you to attend a federal interagency webinar hosted by the LEAD Center.

Demand for workplace talent is high. Remote work opportunities may be with us to stay. These conditions offer new opportunities for expanded access to workforce activities for people with disabilities.

To ensure that workforce programs are ready to meet this demand and can support job seekers and career changers equitably, programs often need to draw on a range of different funding sources. The ability to blend, sequence, or braid funding with other resources becomes an essential ingredient to support employment, equity, and inclusion. Yet each source of funding usually comes with specific goals, target populations, and performance indicators.

In this federal interagency webinar hosted by the LEAD Center, state practitioners across the workforce system will discuss how they successfully applied innovative, collaborative resource sharing that benefits both businesses and job seekers with disabilities.
