The Arc Wisconsin Helps Secure Funding for Youth in Transition

The Arc Wisconsin has been working with the Wisconsin Board for People with Developmental Disabilities to develop initiatives that help youth in transition secure employment. As a result of the chapter’s advocacy, these efforts are now included in Governor Scott Walker’s budget, which proposes $5.1 million in awards to school districts that help students with disabilities obtain employment and $1.5 million to help school districts improve transition programming that connects students with disabilities to jobs.
