Wolf Administration Issues Recommendations to Help People with Disabilities Find Employment

Harrisburg, PA; September 15, 2016 – In March, Governor Tom Wolf signed Executive Order 2016-03, entitled “Establishing ‘Employment First’ Policy and Increasing Competitive-Integrated Employment for Pennsylvanians with a Disability.” The goal of this executive order is to make the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania a model state when it comes to creating a climate hospitable to workers with a disability. Under this executive order, competitive, integrated employment becomes the first consideration and preferred outcome of publicly funded education, training, employment, and long-term supports and service programs for working-age Pennsylvanians with a disability.
