A Non-profit created by the NY State Finance law to serve NY State's preferred source program, NYSID works to make gainful employment possible for New Yorkers with disabilities. Rehabilitative agencies throughout New York who provide support services to individuals with disabilities choose to become members of NYSID. On behalf of these members, and sometimes in conjunction with private sector corporate partners, NYSID enters into contracts with state and local government agencies for goods and services which disabled New Yorkers create or perform.
