PROMISE programs are designed to improve connections among federal programs at the state and local levels to assist youth with disabilities and their families with accessing resources that can improve their educational and employment outcomes. This is an executive summary of the report that presents the estimated impacts of the six PROMISE programs on outcomes related to service receipt, education, employment, expectations, health insurance coverage, income, and youth self-determination, and on participation in SSA and other public assistance programs for youth and their families. The impacts on the primary outcomes were measured at 18 months after youth enrolled in the PROMISE evaluation.
