ICDD has funded two projects under its Competitive Pay and Meaningful Days Call for Investment! Congratulations to Anixter Center and Envision Unlimited! These will be 2-year projects with an investment of $189,040.
The purpose of this initiative is to improve the employment outcomes of people with Developmental Disabilities (DD) who are currently receiving subminimum wages by supporting providers to build, expand and sustain effective skills, capacity and competencies related to integrated employment, integrated meaningful day activities, and person-centered services. This initiative is also in response to the City of Chicago's minimum wage ordinance which accelerates minimum wage increase and removes the allowance of sub-minimum wage by 2021.
