This NCD report defines or describes financial incentives affecting people with disabilities and presents research findings in key areas of people’s lives, such as education and health care. It also describes selected state-level innovations affecting asset development and wealth accumulation. In addition, the report suggests several strategies for securing meaningful employment, career advancement, and benefits needed for daily living and accommodations.
