A healthcare company has pledged $1.5 million aimed at helping disabled Kansans find work. The first round of five grants under the program was announced today (FRI) by UnitedHealthcare, one of three private companies now administering Medicaid services in Kansas. Lieutenant Governor Jeff Colyer (CAWL-yerr) says it was always the state's goal to add new and additional services under KanCare, and helping disabled Kansans find meaningful work is just the start.

Cottonwood Inc. in Lawrence will be getting an $18,000 grant. That organization plans to expand their current job placement services, such as resume writing and job training.
