Iowa Workforce Development - Work With UsŪ   

  Region 7- Employment & Disability

Under the Workforce Investment Act of 1998, regional workforce partners joined forces to create and operate a Regional Workforce Development System. The goal of this system is to enhance customer service by providing useful information that will facilitate a customer's choice and work together to improve accessibility for all individuals, including job seekers with disabilities.   

To learn more about the partner agencies serving your area, please visit and select your closest workforce center location. 

All Regional One Stop Partners are an Employment Network  under the
Social Security Administration Ticket to Work program.  This is one
of many work incentives for SSI & SSDI beneficiaries available
through Social Security.  

Additional information regarding employment for individuals who have a disability can be found at the
Iowa Workforce Development Access web page, with the following linked categories:

·         Job Seekers

·         Employers

·         Quick links for Staff & Partners Resources

This collaborative partnership of state and local agencies received a grant from the U.S. Department of Labor and the Social Security Administration to create new positions for Iowa's Workforce Development Centers called "Disability Program Navigators." Disability program navigators will not duplicate services offered by agencies supporting local workforce services.
