Grants will be awarded for programs which improve employment among New Jersey's developmentally disabled populations. The objective of these programs is to aid the transition from education to the workplace among this population through innovative and cutting edge systems. Programs should yield long-term benefits in terms of systems change, program models, training, or other action that can be replicated. The focus for each effort should be driven by a self-directed approach with concentration on one specific region and or a population that historically has been marginalized or under supported. However, the program should lend itself to all regions and populations.
