Vocational Rehabilitation Programs - Performance Monitoring

Metadata Updated: January 30, 2017

View tables with key data and download tables on basic Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) programs for each state agency The tables (in MS Excel file format) provide information on consumer outcomes, ages, wages earned and hours worked during past fiscal years. They also provide financial breakdowns of expenditures by vocational rehabilitation agencies as well as information on referrals sources, services provided to individuals, counselor caseloads and eligibility rates. Tables cover consumer information and information on VR agency expenditures. While several programs exist to assist individuals with disabilities to become employed, the primary one overseen by the Department of Education is the vocational rehabilitation (VR) program. Under Title I of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended (Act), states receive federal grants to operate a comprehensive VR program. These funds are awarded to designated state VR agencies within each state. This state-operated program is designed to assess, plan, develop and provide VR services to eligible individuals with disabilities, consistent with their strengths, resources, priorities, concerns, abilities, capabilities, interests and informed choice. By providing services in this way, the VR program enables individuals with disabilities to prepare for and engage in employment. For data after 2005, see rsa.ed.gov.
