Vocational Rehabilitation Publications and State Plan

State Plan

To be eligible for a VR grant, each state must submit and have approved a unified state plan (USP). The USP is a four-year strategy that applies to state agencies receiving VR state grants as well as the agencies administering Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) core programs. WIOA specifies that each state's USP must describe the labor force needs in the state and how the core program authorized by WIOA will be administered, aligned and coordinated to meet those needs. VR programs must also provide information related to staff recruitment and training, service provision and prioritization, cooperative agreements with other agencies and programs, and annual reports. The two most recent VR State Plans are provided below.
