Why does DVR do a State Plan?
The State Plan is required by the federal Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA), a major
funding source to the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR). The State Plan is updated
each year to guide the way we deliver vocational rehabilitation services to customers and to
ensure DVR fully carries out the federal Rehabilitation Act.
The division will submit a 2014 State Plan Update to RSA no later than June 30, 2013. The
updated plan will cover the time period October 1, 2013 through September 30, 2014.
Why is the DVR State Plan important?
The State Plan describes all of DVR's goals, priorities, partnerships, and activities
that will be carried out to serve customers.
DVR uses the State Plan as a road map for providing customers with high quality, effective
vocational rehabilitation services.
DVR conducted a series of public forums across the state to get input on the State Plan.
Forums were held in Spokane, Lynnwood and Lacey in May 2013. A summary of this input is
attached below. DVR will consider the forum comments when finalizing the State Plan.
While the 2014 State Plan Update is not complete at this time, you may see changes
made so far to the draft below.
