Disabilities Emphasis Program

New Jersey’s NRCS Program Manager: Nancy Paolini

October is Disabilities Awareness Month.

The Disability Emphasis Program Manager encourages employment of qualified persons with disabilities. These opportunities include a broad range of grade levels and occupational series within NRCS.

The program seeks to promote understanding and appreciation of individuals with disabilities, create full participation in a work environment that capitalizes on creativity and richness, promote understanding of the requirements of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, provide reasonable accommodations and accessibilities, and encourage managers to provide career enhancement and promotions for people with disabilities.
