Federal Financing of Supported Employment & Customized Employment for People with Mental Illness: Final Report

The Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), in conjunction with the Federal Employment Workgroup on Disability, commissioned a review of the federal financing mechanisms used by state agencies to implement the evidence-based employment models known as Individual Placement and Support (IPS) and Customized Employment (CE). This report identifies strategies for improved access to federal financing of IPS and CE services for persons with mental illness through case studies of current state and local practices. Through a subcontract with Westat, TAC staff contributed to this report by detailing how Medicaid resources can be used to finance supported employment. (2011)
