Through the Employment First Act, Act 36 of 2018, the Office of Governor Tom Wolf and the Governor’s Cabinet for People with Disabilities, has created the initial three-year plan, that outlines the commonwealth’s policy recommendations to implement the Employment First Act to improve employment outcomes for Pennsylvanians with disabilities. More information about the Employment First Act, helpful information, and resources will be available in the near future.
