This New York state plan provides a framework for promoting full opportunities for all individuals with disabilities in both the workplace and the community. It is a legal compact which describes the nature, scope, and conditions of the state's program and ensures that program administration will conform to federal legislation and regulations. The plan begins with an outline of the vocational rehabilitation process in New York and then presents priorities, current activities, and planned activities for fiscal years 1992-1994. Priorities include: improve access to services and programs of the State Education Department, ensure coordination of services, increase integrated employment options, foster independent living services, improve access to vocational rehabilitation services, and improve program and fiscal management.
