2017 TASH Conference has ended

Each year, the TASH Conference brings together a diverse community of stakeholders who gain information, learn about resources, and connect with others across the country to strengthen the disability field. This year’s conference theme, “Still We Rise for Equity, Opportunity, and Inclusion,” shows the resilience of individuals with disabilities and their families across the lifespan. Conference attendees will celebrate their passion for disability rights, civil rights, and human rights while exploring inclusive communities, schools, and workplaces that support people with disabilities, including those with complex support needs. Return to TASH website.

Over the past few years, new policies under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), the HCBS Final Rule, and the ABLE Act have highlighted the importance of improving the financial capability of all Americans, including people with disabilities. As a part of employment services, talking about money can play a critical role in identifying barriers to employment, setting financial and employment goals, making decisions about public benefits, and effectively managing earnings. National Disability Institute's (NDIs) LEAD Center will share insights from nine pilot sites that are providing financial capability services as part of employment services. Attendees will learn about and receive tools to assess the financial health of their customers, support customers to improve money skills, make the connection between financial and employment goals, identify just-in-time moments to teach an individual about their money, and explore opportunities to integrate financial empowerment into employment and other disability services.
