The Kentucky Department of Workforce Investment, University of Kentucky Human Development Institute, and other committed project partners are leading Kentucky’s RETAIN Demonstration Project. This collaborative effort is known as the RETAINing Kentucky’s Workforce through Universal Design . Building on state efforts including Kentucky Work Matters, Employment First, and the Call to Action to Meet Commonwealth Workforce Needs, RETAIN Kentucky will use peer support, assistive technology and universal design to promote quality, coordinated health and employment-related stay-at-work/return-to-work (SAW/RTW) services. RETAIN Kentucky service coordinators will work directly with employers to assess the impact of SAW/RTW activities and help workers facing illness or injury remain in or return to the workforce.
