EMPLOYING VERMONTERS WITH DISABILITIES - RESEARCH BRIEF

The Vermont Developmental Disabilities Council is pleased to accept proposals for the research and analysis of the barriers, opportunities, and trends impacting the employment of Vermonters with disabilities in the current State economy. Proposals may target one phase of a multi-stage project, but must result in materials – a preliminary report, infographics, etc. – that present a significant set of findings. The successful applicant should anticipate working with government sources, including the Vermont Division of Vocational Rehabilitation and the Department of Labor, to collect quantitative data. The inclusion of qualitative data is welcome but optional. The project may include all disability sub-types, but must include developmental disabilities, as defined in 42 USC 15,001 et seq (2000).
