Working together to expand employment opportunities, Acting Assistant Secretary for ODEP Jennifer Sheehy (left) and Principal Deputy Administrator for the HHS’ Administration for Community Living Sharon Lewis signed an interagency agreement in early October. The document describes ways in which the agencies will align policy, practice, and funding toward outcomes related to competitive, integrated employment, independent living, and improved socioeconomic experiences for people with disabilities. Building on a partnership that started in 2012, the agreement solidifies continued collaboration with HHS’ Administration for Community Living.
