The Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP)


The Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP) for College Students and Recent Graduates is a Federal-wide recruitment and referral program. The program is designed to provide opportunities to emerging professionals with disabilities for both temporary and permanent positions nationally and internationally. The WRP provides access to one of the largest pools of Schedule A eligible candidates and is recognized as a model for recruitment and hiring by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Coordinated by the Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) and the Department of Defense's Diversity Management Operations Center, CAP works closely with the WRP to provide participants with assistive technology and workplace accommodations at no cost to the employing agency.

WRP Accommodation Needs

If a WRP participant is unaware of what solutions best fit his or her needs, a needs assessment can be completed online.  After completing the online assessment, CAP will provide recommendations of assistive technologies for consideration.

If additional guidance is needed, CAP staff is available to conduct a more detailed assessment.  If a participant is located in the Washington, DC area, an assessment can be conducted at our CAP Technology & Evaluation Center (CAPTEC), located at the Pentagon.  For participants outside the DC metro area, needs assessments may be conducted via video teleconference, phone, or email.

Once accommodation solutions are identified, the WRP participant or appropriate personnel from the employing agency may submit a CAP Request.  On the request, please indicate that you are a participant in WRP and include contact information for you and your hiring manager or supervisor.
