From U.S. Department of Education: “PROMISE was created to foster improved health, education, and post-secondary outcomes for children ages 14-16 who receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI), as well as their families. The primary focus of the initiative is to support improved coordination of various services, such as those available through the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, the Vocational Rehabilitation State Grants program, Medicaid health and home and community based services, Job Corps, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), and Workforce Investment Act programs. PROMISE also seeks to facilitate the increased use of such services, ensuring that families are tied into programs for which they might be eligible, but are not yet participating.
Please review the PROMISE Public Input Notice (PIN), made available February 15, 2013, and offer your input on key program areas. Comments can be posted on the PIN Blog. Comments will be accepted until 5:00 PM EDT on March 17, 2013.”
