Quality Employment for Disabled Veterans – Video
This podcast will follow a segment of a workforce3one webinar connected earlier this year on the Disability Program Navigators (DPNs) partnering with the Disabled Veterans Outreach Program (DVOP) and Local Veterans Employment Representative (LVER) staff to provide access to the full array of services available to disabled veterans though the public workforce system.
The State of Idaho will be asked to provide follow-up on what has been happening in the state in this area since the Webinar aired almost a year ago. In addition, a newly released Information Brief on this topic will be posted and discussed. Gordon Graff has been the State Lead for the State of Idaho DPN project since it was initially funded three years ago. His position is located in the Idaho Department of Labor. The State of Idaho has used ARRA funds to supplement the funding for the DPN program. Gordon is an expert on developing local partnerships to coordinate and leverage resources to promote employment of customers with disabilities in the One-Stop Career Center system.
