The Bureau of Rehabilitation Services (BRS) wishes to thank stakeholders and members of the public for submitting comment and feedback on the amendment to the Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) portion of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Unified State Plan, which pertains to BRS’s request to the Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) to enter into an order of selection. BRS has reviewed and considered the public comments received. BRS does not anticipate any substantial revisions to the amended section of the State Plan and will move forward with submitting the amendment to RSA. The order of selection will be implemented upon approval of the State Plan amendment by RSA. The timeframe for when BRS might receive that approval is unknown; however, we do not anticipate implementation occurring prior to July 1, 2017.
Information about order of selection, including the draft State Plan Amendment, can be viewed on the VR order of selection Web page. Additional information will continue to be added to this resource page, including a document to address frequently asked questions, and updates on BRS’ continued progress to build sufficient capacity to serve all eligible individuals. BRS also plans to hold a webinar that will be open to members of the public.
Thank you again for your feedback.
