Jobs Now Partnership


Project Dates: 2016 – 2021

Funded by: U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Community Living


The Hawai‘i Jobs Now Partnership (JNP) will develop a comprehensive set of evidence-based policies, procedures, and practices, which will be the foundation of systems change activities that will result in an increase in the quality and quantity of community-based integrated competitive employment for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (ID/DD).

The project will target youth and young adults with ID/DD ages 16 to 30 years who are transitioning from secondary or post-secondary school, or other pre-vocational settings, to competitive employment in integrated settings.

Principal Investigator: Dr. Chuan Chinn
