WASHINGTON (AP) - An upcoming center at UNC Charlotte is one of a number of groups awarded grants by the U.S. Department of Education designed to help improve the future of people with disabilities from their birth through their early adult years.

The department announced more than $121 million in grants Wednesday. The aim is to promote inclusion, equity and opportunity for all children and adults with disabilities to help ensure their economic self-sufficiency, independent living and full community participation.

The National TA Center on Improving Transition to Postsecondary Education and Employment for Students with Disabilities is getting $2.5 million. It will work with states, school districts, and vocational rehabilitation agencies to help ensure that students with disabilities graduate from high school with what they need for success in postsecondary education and employment.
