Call for Proposals

The U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) announced a new competitive initiative to identify and evaluate potential solutions to improve employment outcomes for young adults ages 14 to 24 who apply for or receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

Through the initiative, ODEP is soliciting proposals from subject matter experts for innovative and evidence-based actions - including legislative, regulatory and policy changes - that can increase labor force participation and economic success among this population. Mathematica Policy Research will administer the initiative through a $1.075 million contract with ODEP.
