Who is the CRP Leadership Network?
A core group of providers are in the Community Rehabilitation Programs (CRPs) leadership network. This group of providers are recognized for either having converted their programs from 14 c certificates or have made substantial gains in doing so. T-TAP held a focus group meeting on January 30, 2003 in Arlington, Virginia bringing together the project's CRPs to discuss the barriers and strategies for competitive employment.
The CRP Leadership Network includes the following providers. Each agency provides a summary of their program and contact information. In addition, there are examples of strategies that they have used to address barriers to competitive employment at the organizational level and the individual level.
