Connecticut DDS Pathway to a Better Job

The Connecticut Department of Developmental Services now has a great opportunity available to help individuals interested in increasing their earnings and financial assets. Assistance is now being made available to individuals and their IP teams, on increasing earnings and financial assets, by reaching a goal of working more than 20 hours per week. A primary focus of this effort will be learning how to manage public benefits in a way that maximizes job opportunities and assets, and ensures that concerns over loss of benefits are not a barrier to employment success. Additional information and the application materials for this project can be obtained at www.usworks.org/ct. The deadline for applications is October 15, 2010. The Pathway to a Better Job project is sponsored by Connect-Ability. If you have any additional questions, please contact Rick Kugler at 617-287-4378; rick.kugler@umb.edu
