The Coalition for the Preservation of 14c has just released a white paper, which it hopes you will find provides a fresh and insightful perspective on the value of 14(c) certificates, particularity for those individuals with the most significant intellectual and developmental disabilities.
A message from ACCSES:
The Government Accountability Office, which has reached out to ACCSES for assistance with this survey as well as other GAO studies, asked ACCSES to send the following message to ACCSES members:
“In the coming days, your organization may receive an email from the Government Accountability Office (GAO), an independent, nonpartisan agency that works for Congress. The GAO is conducting a study of trends in wages and participation in the 14(c) program, characteristics of 14(c) employees and movement to competitive integrated employment, and the Department of Labor’s oversight of the program. To help inform parts of this study, GAO plans to conduct a survey of a random sample of 14(c) certificate holders. We encourage you to respond and ensure that GAO has the correct contact information for the survey.
If you have any questions about the survey or GAO’s study, please contact the GAO team at email@example.com.”
If your organization receives the survey and can speak to the issues, ACCSES hopes you will participate. You are welcome to reach out to us with questions.
