Work provides many opportunities and benefits for all of us, not just income, but also relationships, a way to contribute to our community, expand our horizons, grow our knowledge, and even keep us healthy!  Competitive Integrated Employment (CIE) can offer the same benefits for members, and more, including combatting social isolation, increasing self-esteem, and promoting positive mental and physical health.  Work for all of us may be what motivates us or gives our life purpose, allows us to connect with others that share a similar passion, contribute by offering our strengths and skills, or more simply, offers us the financial means to live the life we wish to have.

As part of this outcome, you will work closely with members to complete various activities focused on supporting their interest in Finding CIE and/or Keeping their current or newly acquired CIE job. The following payments will be available to providers who complete the eligibility process per the terms and conditions of the CIE Outcome:

  • Finding CIE Full Payment: $1,200/member
  • Keeping CIE Full Payment: $400/member

Competitive Integrated Employment is defined as work performed on a full-time or part-time basis; compensated not less than the applicable state or local minimum wage law (or the customary wage), or if self-employment, yields income comparable to persons without disabilities doing similar tasks; the worker should be eligible for the level of benefits provided to other employees; the work should be at a location typically found in the community; where the employee with a disability interacts with other persons who do not have disabilities and are not in a supervisory role; and the job presents opportunities for advancement.
