Grant to fund job opportunities for disabled Alaskans

Posted: Sunday, October 29, 2000

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- A $900,000 federal grant will help put disabled Alaskans to work, U.S. Department of Labor officials announced Friday.

The Alaska Division of Vocational Rehabilitation is receiving the money under an 18-month nationwide $20-million work incentive grant program.

The state will use the funds for a one-stop system designed to provide a full range of help to job seekers. The federal ''One-Stop'' career center program offers career counseling, labor market information, training referrals and job placement help.

Partners in the Alaska program include the Alaska Division of Public Assistance, Alaska Division of Employment Security and Tribal Vocational Rehabilitation programs.
