Implementation Plan for Subminimum Wage Recommendations

The National Council on Disability (NCD) recognizes that its recommendations impact thousands of individuals and their families. NCD further recognizes that it will take support from many stakeholders to eliminate the discriminatory practices of the 14(c) program and build a sustainable supported employment infrastructure along with other supports. This fall, to accomplish these goals and make the system change effort necessary, NCD plans to draft proposed legislation. In addition, NCD will educate interested parties on the recommendations and proposed legislation through a variety of mechanisms including presentations at national or regional conferences (see below), webinars, newsletter articles, and other media. This effort will focus on the goal of introducing the legislation in the next Congress. 

The following schedule is not all-inclusive, but a proposed list of upcoming conferences that may be utilized for this purpose:
