This brief examines strategies being used at five community colleges serving high numbers of dislocated workers and how the outlined practices meet the needs of older workers, some of whom may be aging with or into disabilities. The NTAR Leadership Center (National Technical Assistance and Research Center to Promote Leadership for Increasing the Employment and Economic Independence of Adults with Disabilities) was a training and technical assistance center funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy.
