National Employer Policy, Research, and Technical Assistance Center on the Employment of People with Disabilities

This solicitation is a re-competition of an existing cooperative agreement.

The work done under the new Center will build upon the prior work of ODEP’s Employer Assistance and Resource Network on Disability Inclusion (EARN).

The new Center, which will retain the name EARN, will continue


to conduct research; engage with the business community; identify effective policies and practices that support business needs; and provide resources, technical assistance, and training to help public and private sector employers (including Federal contractors) recruit, hire, retain, and advance individuals with disabilities.

The new Center will differ from the current, however, in that it will have a stronger focus on policy development, research, and compliance assistance activities that will be driven and developed in collaboration with private sector business entities, including through a network of business intermediary organizations representing groups of employers.
