New Minnesota Fund Reimburses Employers for Costs of Reasonable Accommodations
Minnesota job seekers with disabilities have the skills, experience, drive, and determination that employers are desperate for. But many small and mid-size businesses worry about the cost of providing reasonable accommodations.
Minnesota’s NEW Employer Reasonable Accommodation Fund is Here to Help!
Now, through the Department of Employment and Economic Development’s (DEED’s) Employer Reasonable Accommodation Fund (ERAF) small to mid-sized Minnesota employers can request reimbursement for expenses related to providing reasonable accommodations for job applicants and employees with disabilities. It’s simple, it’s easy, and it connects great workers with great businesses.
What’s a Reasonable Accommodation?
Some examples of reasonable accommodations include ergonomic workstations, specialized software, captioning services, special equipment, and much more. Our website and the ERAF staff can walk you through the kinds of accommodations covered by the fund.
We're Here to Help
Do you have questions about reasonable accommodations? Do you need to know more about the ADA? The ERAF staff can answer questions, provide technical assistance, and provide more information about the fund and how it can help Minnesota businesses.
