Why does DVR do a State Plan?
The State Plan is required by the Rehabilitation Act and is submitted to the U.S. Department of Education, Rehabilitation
Services Administration (RSA). The State Plan is updated annually to guide the way we deliver vocational
rehabilitation services to customers, ensure DVR fully complies with the Rehabilitation Act, and secure critical federal funding.
DVR strives to make the State Plan a living document, part of the ongoing dialogue and strategic partnership between DVR and
its stakeholders. As a living document, the State Plan guides our collective efforts to meet our customers' needs and improve
the vocational outcomes of Washingtonians living with disabilities.
What is contained in the DVR State Plan?
The State Plan is made up of a series of attachments which describe DVR's goals, priorities, strategies, and other activities.
The 2014 State Plan update is in effect from October 2013 through September 2014 and will be updated annually.
Below are the sections that make up DVR’s current 2014 State Plan.
