With the recent federal landmark legislation to improve our nation’s public workforce system through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunities Act (WIOA), many IPS programs are beginning to serve a diverse population of individuals including those with intellectual disabilities, physical disabilities, transition aged youth, young adults, Social Security and TANF recipients.  IPS has been widely researched with people with severe mental illness and the results have been consistently strong and positive.  While a small number of studies for people with other conditions have occurred that have also yielded favorable results, additional research is underway.  The IPS practice principles align with common sense approaches to serving a wide range of individuals, and we hope to provide a strong evidence base to prove its effectiveness as various projects unfold over the next few years.
