Vocational Rehabilitation Services Alert
ATTENTION TIME SENSITIVE: PUBLIC HEARING AND COMMENTS
The administration of the Utah State Office of Rehabilitation (USOR) has recently determined resources are not available to provide vocational rehabilitation services to all eligible individuals through the program year ending in 2015. Consistent with state and federal law and regulations, restrictions are being established regarding priority categories for selecting the order in which otherwise eligible individuals will be served.
An Order of Selection will be established and a waiting list will be activated for those who may be determined eligible for services but do not yet have an Individualized Plan for Employment.
Public hearings will be held on January 5, 2015 from 9:00 a.m. until noon and on January 7, 2015 from 5:00 until 8:00 p.m. Please see the attached document listing the locations statewide where public comment will be taken.
