Strategy: ICOA will continue adhering to the developed policy to meet the USDOL’s equitable distribution level and focus on increasing enrollment in the underserved areas.
- Adhere to SCSEP policy that sets maximum participation levels and transition from overenrolled areas to underserved.
- The Policy has been submitted with the PY2018 grant and incorporated into the SCSEP contract.
- ICOA will work closely with the current national SCSEP grantee, Easterseals-Goodwill, to negotiate swaps for participant slots, if needed.
