Nationally and in Wisconsin, vocational rehabilitation agencies successfully help individuals with disabilities obtain and maintain employment. The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) emphasizes helping individuals obtain 21st century skills to increase self-sufficiency and independence. To advance this shared objective, the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development's Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) applied for a U.S. Department of Education Career Pathways Advancement (CPA) Initiative grant in Spring 2021 and was awarded $14 million in September 2021.
The CPA Initiative allows DVR to create resources and opportunities to support consumers to advance in a career in one of four fields: Healthcare, Digital/Information Technology, Construction, and Manufacturing.
To achieve these goals, DVR will use the $14 million CPA Initiative grant over five years to enroll at least 500 individuals in the program. Grant-funded efforts will focus on four STEM areas: healthcare, manufacturing, construction, and digital/information technology.
