Employment First Map

This map is a resource for everyone involved in the Employment First movement including: individuals with disabilities, family members, employers, employment providers, state vocational rehabilitation staff, state developmental disability staff, educators, policymakers, researchers, and general community members.

There is an Employment First effort in virtually every state. Thirty-eight states adopted an official state policy, stating that employment in the community is the first and preferred service option for people with disabilities.
