WAC 388-891A-1174

The department is amending WAC 388-891A-1174 “When does DVR purchase and loan a vehicle to you?” The amendment is a typographical correction in sub-section 2(c) of WAC 388-891A-1174. This change is to ensure that a reference contained in the rule is accurate. Currently, the reference is to WAC 388-891A-1178; the correct reference is to WAC 388-891A-1175.

Chapters 388-891, 891A WAC

The department is repealing rules contained in chapter 388-891 WAC “Vocational Rehabilitation Services for Individuals with Disabilities” and creating new rules in a new chapter 388-891A WAC “Vocational Rehabilitation Services for Individuals with Disabilities”. This new chapter supports the purpose of the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR), which is to empower people with disabilities to achieve a better quality of life by obtaining and maintaining employment. The rules are intended to inform the public about DVR’s vocational rehabilitation (VR) services and the conditions under which DVR provides them.

DVR is creating new rules in a new chapter 338-891A WAC in order to comply with new requirements resulting from the reauthorization of the federal Rehabilitation Act, add guidance to the DVR Customer Services Manual (Division procedures) and align the chapter of WAC with standard operating practice and Federal rules, and increase the ease of locating WAC sections. For example, many sections of this chapter addressing the conditions under which DVR will pay for VR services have been relocated from sections grouped under the topic of “Vocational Rehabilitation Services” to sections grouped under the topic of “Paying for Services.”

A crosswalk table of existing and new WAC sections is available upon request.
