Disability Issues Committee

The mission of the Disability Issues Committee is to advocate for the increase in the number of people with disabilities in the workforce, as well as to improve access for people with disabilities to New Jersey’s workforce programs and services. In carrying out this work, the Committee develops policies and program strategies that focus on identifying the training needs, accommodations, and resources specific to people with disabilities, ensuring those needs are integrated into the One-Stop system and that workplace education addresses the needs of the disability community. The Disability Issues Committee also serves as the Leadership Council for a national grant to the NJ Department of Human Services in the implementation of its DiscoverAbility Strategic Plan. Nicholas Gacos, SETC member and President, Colorado Café Associates, chairs this committee.
