Disability Inclusive Employment Policy
Rehabilitation Research and Training Center Newsletter

March 2023 – Issue 9


Welcome to the ninth issue of the Disability Inclusive Employment Policy RRTC Newsletter.

People with disabilities encounter obstacles at every stage of the employment life cycle. Through a series of research studies, the Disability Inclusive Employment Policy (DIEP) Rehabilitation Research and Training Center (RRTC) is adding new knowledge and understanding about public policies that impact employment opportunities and economic stability for working-age Americans with disabilities. This project is a collaboration between Syracuse, Harvard, and Rutgers universities.

This issue of the newsletter provides updates on what the DIEP RRTC researchers are learning about the impact of COVID on employment of people with disabilities across types of work and market sectors. The newsletter shares a summary prepared by APSE, a DIEP RRTC knowledge translation collaborator of recent relevant activities of the 118th session of Congress and at a state level. In addition, readers are encouraged to listen to our podcast series with insights from a diverse group of subject matter experts that provide their perspectives on ways to address policy and other system barriers to improved employment outcomes.
