Supporting people on waivers

Employment supports for people on waivers span multiple state agencies.

Engage | Plan | Find | Keep (PDF) is a framework created by E1MN to show how waiver and VRS/SSB services support people at different phases of the path to employment. The person's thoughts about competitive integrated work define where to start and how they progress through the phases of the framework. 

Click the links below to learn more about how to help a person at each phase. To review the various professionals that may be involved in a person's employment journey, see roles and responsibilities. Use My Vault to encourage collaboration between everyone on the team. Use the E1MN Common Referral Form when referring from one professional to another.
