Welcome to the Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD) PROMISE TA Center. The Promoting the Readiness of Minors in Supplemental Security Income (PROMISE) program is an interagency collaboration of the U.S. Departments of Education, Health and Human Services, Labor, and the Social Security Administration. Under this grant program, state agencies have partnered to develop and implement six model demonstration projects (MDPs) that provide coordinated services and supports to youth with disabilities receiving supplemental security income (SSI) benefits and to their families in order to improve the education and career outcomes. Six model demonstration projects have been established serving a total of eleven states.
The AUCD PROMISE Technical Assistance (TA) Center is funded by the U.S. Department of Education to provide assistance to the six MDPs, provide information about interventions and supports for SSI eligible youth and their families, and link the MDPs in order to create the best possible outcomes for youth and their families.
