Grants: Jobs for the Disabled in Kansas

     OVERLAND PARK, Kan. - Gov. Sam Brownback and United Healthcare have launched a three-year, $1.5 million initiative to help disabled Kansas residents find good jobs.
     The company is pledging to provide grants to community groups serving the disabled. United Healthcare announced the first five Friday, totaling nearly $264,000.
     Brownback joined United Healthcare executive Steve Nelson at a news conference; Nelson is CEO of the company's division for state Medicaid programs.
     United Healthcare's Community Plan of Kansas is one of three private health insurers managing most of the Kansas Medicaid program serving the needy and disabled.
     Both Brownback and Nelson said the overhaul of the Kansas Medicaid program led to treating each participant as a whole person, paving the way for such a grant program.
