Postsecondary Support Project (TPSID, DVR, DDD)

The Postsecondary Support Project is supported by funding from the Hawaii Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, the Hawaii Developmental Disability Division, and a five-year Transition and Postsecondary Program for Students with Intellectual Disabilities (TPSID) grant from the United States Department of Education. By providing on-campus coaching and support, the PSP project continues to develop and expand upon its successful transition model to improve employment and independent living outcomes for individuals with intellectual, developmental, and other disabilities.
