Maine Developmental Disabilities Council

Employment First

MDDC was a founding member of Employment First Maine, which began meeting in 2011 and brought together people with DD, advocates, state agency representatives and others – this coalition was instrumental in passing the Employment First Maine Act of 2013 at the State Legislature, codifying the services and supports necessary for successful employment for people with developmental disabilities in the community. This legislation also created the Employment First Maine Coalition, which solidified the network begun in 2013, and created structures for collecting data and creating bylaws to address the potential waiver changes and supports needed for successful implementation.
