Employment Services

Real Jobs and Real Pay for People with Disabilities

The Taskforce created two fact sheets to help explain what Employment First (E1st) is–and isn’t. The fact sheet for individuals and families also shows how to get involved in Iowa’s E1st initiative.

State agencies, employment service providers, and advocates are working together on a common purpose: to make real jobs in the community, at or above the minimum wage, the preferred and expected outcome of employment services for people with disabilities.
