“WIOA, Competitive Integrated Employment, and VR Funding”


~~“The Individualized Plan for Employment for a DORS consumer must include a specific employment goal that is consistent with the general goal of competitive integrated employment.  For an employment outcome to be considered competitive integrated employment, WIOA regulations require that the outcome satisfy the following criteria to be permitted under the Vocational Rehabilitation program:
1.competitive earnings
2.integrated location
3.opportunities for advancement

If an individual’s employment fails to satisfy any one of these three components, the employment will not meet the definition of competitive integrated employment and will no longer be allowed under the VR program. Please see the Competitive Integrated Employment Fact Sheet (below) for clarification regarding the definition of competitive integrated employment and frequently asked questions.”
