The DVR may purchase vocational services from Community Rehabilitation Programs - CRPs through Client Service contracts to provide rehabilitation services to maximize our customers’ ability to seek and maintain employment. The CRP contracts typically begin July 1 for a two-year term ending June 30.

CRP Client Service contracts are uniformly defined statewide and include:

  • Services
  • Expected outcomes of services
  • Outcome based fee payments

Potential Contractors are required to complete a Request for Qualifications - RFQ to receive a DVR CRP contract. The RFQ indicates the requirements a Contractor must meet to be granted a contract.

Potential contractors who have never had a DVR CRP contract are granted a two-year period to meet additional requirements for subsequent CRP contracts. Depending on the contracted service(s) additional requirements may include:

  • CVE certification
  • CRC certification
  • CARF
  • RSAS
  • Licensed in Employment Services by the Department of Health
  • State Certified by the Department of Health as a Mental Health Clubhouse
  • Proof that your organization has completed the International Center for Clubhouse Development - ICCD Basic Clubhouse Training Program
  • For Individual Providers (Job Placement, Job Retention and Intensive Training Services only):
