Employment supports for people on waivers span multiple state agencies.

The Engage, Plan, Find, Keep framework graphic

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.
