In May, IBI participated in Department of Labor (DoL) legislative policy recommendation sessions to advise on effective stay-at-work and return-to-work (SAW/RTW) strategies.

The DoL's Office of Employment Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) is continuing its SAW/RTW work with a $20 million grant program to state Departments of Labor, Workforce Development Agencies, and other government entities to "identify new, replicable strategies to help individuals with a work-related disability stay on the job."

"Successful applicants will propose coordinated employment and health services through an integrated network of partners, including state and/or local workforce development agencies; health-care systems and/or provider networks; and other strategic partners, such as employers or insurers."

If this describes you (or one of your state government partners), you may want to check out the grant announcement. The deadline is August 3, 2018.
