Evaluation of the Every Talent/Every Skill/Add Us In Grant Program

The Heldrich Center is under contract with the National Organization on Disability (NOD) to conduct an evaluation of its U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Disability Employment Policy’s Add Us In grant entitled “Every Talent/Every Skill” (ET/ES). The ET/ES project will serve northern New Jersey and New York City’s gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT); minority; and women-owned businesses who seek to build a more inclusive workplace by hiring and promoting New Jersey and New York residents with disabilities. Through the grant, NOD is building partnerships with employers, state vocational rehabilitation offices, the public workforce system, youth transition organizations, the LGBT Chamber of Commerce, as well as representatives of groups of black, female, and Hispanic business owners to help people with disabilities obtain competitive employment. The Heldrich Center will undertake a process evaluation of the grant and will collect data through surveys, individual interviews, and focus groups as well as through the analysis of participant data collected by NOD and its partners.
