ARE THERE OTHER THINGS WE SHOULD KEEP IN MIND AS WE MAKE OUR DECISION ABOUT PRIORITY AREAS AND PROJECTS?
Michael Luna
01:01:29
1. WHICH OF THE PRIORITIES ARE YOU PLEASED TO SEE?
Vivian Haun
01:01:34
Customized employment
Mark Melanson
01:01:50
What are the deliverables of the grant funding? If replicable, train other ES providers. Number of people places. Defining the measurable outcomes of the grant funding.
Nick Wavrin
01:01:57
Engaging Families and Youth in CIE
Michael Luna
01:04:37
2. WHAT DO WE WANT TO SEE IN PLACE AS A RESULT OF THESE EFFORTS?
Pamela Scarano
01:08:43
I agree with you Carole
Eric Zigman
01:10:15
I think we would see less assumptions about - and discrimination toward the people we serve as employees- and more examples (and hopefully data) reflecting that people with significant support needs also have jobs in community settings.
Beth Burt
01:11:29
I caution that we focus on person-centered outcomes. I like partnering with a career path or an industry instead of looking at one business,
Rebecca LaBoriel
01:14:03
agree Sara
Pamela Scarano
01:14:11
That would really help speed things up I agree with you Sarah
Pamela Scarano
01:14:16
Sara
Michael Luna
01:16:13
3. WHAT WILL BE DIFFICULT TO ACHIEVE IN A 12–18-MONTH PERIOD?
Pamela Scarano
01:18:45
I think a system can be developed in 12-18months and then tweeking it will need to be done to have those positive outcomes to exist.
Michael Luna
01:27:09
4. WHICH OF THE PRIORITIES OR STRATEGIES DO YOU CONSIDER AS MOST IMPORTANT TO INCREASE OPPORTUNITIES FOR CIE?
Nick Wavrin
01:27:41
Business Focus Practices
Beth Burt
01:29:01
2, 4
Nick Wavrin
01:29:39
Exactly Carole! I was thinking of just that initiative
Nick Wavrin
01:31:21
Definitely, Vivian! It certainly has to be a multi-pronged approach. The individuals and their families (and support systems) are absolutely essential to their success
Nick Wavrin
01:31:52
Great point, Rebecca!
Eric Zigman
01:32:07
(3) Business Focused Practices and (1c) Technology literacy (as we need to anticipate most future employment having a tech component)
Nick Wavrin
01:32:48
Great points, Bryan
Mark Melanson
01:34:18
Grant applicants be required to be vendorized with DOR in addition to DDS
Michael Luna
01:34:19
5. NOW AS YOU LOOK OVER ALL OF THE PRIORITIES, IS THERE ANYTHING MAJOR THAT WE ARE MISSING?
Jessica Grove (she/her)
01:34:25
Agree Bryan. DOR is spending $2M on marketing/media campaign targeted to medium and smaller size businesses.
Michael Luna
01:36:05
6. WHAT OTHER CONSIDERATIONS SHOULD WE KEEP IN MIND AS WE SET PRIORITIES FOR THE GRANTS PROGRAM?
Suad Bisogno
01:37:18
Thank you Olivia!
Sara Murphy
01:38:03
I think we need to ensure that there is a "community of practice" element to whatever is funded so that we have a lasting impact across the state once the grants are finished.
Pamela Scarano
01:38:41
Thanks Olivia and Brian
Nick Wavrin
01:39:56
Thank you, everyone!
