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
  • Licensed in Employment Services by DSHS/Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery
  • State Certified by the DSHS/Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery as a Mental Health Clubhouse
  • Proof that your organization has completed the International Center for Clubhouse Development - ICCD Basic Clubhouse Training Program

Washington State DVR CRP Training

Thirteen courses developed for DVR by the WISE Learning Center of the Washington Initiative for Supported Employment are directed as core training for CRPs. They are available on our DVR Supported Employment Training page.

The following CRP Staff are encouraged to take the training:

  • 1. The Contractor’s current direct client service providers and program staff shall complete all thirteen courses within twelve months of the contract amendment start date; and
  • 2. Newly hired employees are required to complete all thirteen courses within ninety days of the employee’s hire date

The agency is responsible for verifying their employee has completed the required training.
