Individuals with disabilities have one of the highest barriers to employment among underrepresented groups in the workforce. The Employment Program for Young Adults with Disabilities Program is designed to counter those barriers by providing employment opportunities for those individuals.

Another characteristic that is being looked for is a history of partnerships with employers that have the proven ability to place and retain individuals in the workforce.
