Appropriation Level: $1,500,000

The purpose of the LIVES is to address the employment related needs of individuals with physical and/or mental health issues by:

  • obtaining the documentation and other information needed to establish a LIVES participant’s eligibility for VESID services;
  • identifying the personal, family and disability issues that must be addressed in order for Family Assistance recipients and other low-income family members with physical and/or mental impairments to successfully participate in employment or employment related activities;
  • developing the steps these individuals need to take to overcome these barriers;
  • connecting LIVES participants in a timely manner with the required programs and activities that are countable towards the federal participation rate; and
  • ensuring that program partners are provided with thorough and appropriate information in a timely fashion.

A combination of performance based and cost based reimbursement is being used to support the selected projects. At least 75% of the award is earned as participants meet 3 specific outcomes:

  1. Assessment/evaluation
  2. Completion of an Individualized Plan for Employment (IPE)
