Provisions in the Proposed Regulations Governing the State VR Program Describing the Interplay with the Workforce Investment System.
Policy Brief, v2 n4 Jun 2000
This policy brief identifies and describes the provisions of the proposed regulation describing the responsibilities of a state vocational rehabilitation (VR) agency to design and operate the state VR program as an integral component of the statewide workforce investment system, as envisioned by the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (WIA). The proposed regulations envision major systemic changes in the operation of the state VR program through the creation of a streamlined, collaborative partnership with other components of the statewide workforce investment system. This new partnership requires a more activist role by state VR agencies regarding the provision of services to persons with disabilities in the VR program itself as well as other components of the workforce investment system. The brief addresses the goal of Title I of WIA, the relationship between the state VR program and WIA, applicable regulations, submission of the state plan, relationship between the state rehabilitation council and the state workforce investment board, the responsibilities under the comprehensive system of personnel development, requirements related to the WIA system, statewide assessment, information and referral services, the Individualized Plan for Employment, and the scope of vocational rehabilitation services under WIA.
