Career Counseling and Information and Referral Request

Mississippi

~~“Section 511 of WIOA requires that any entity holding a special wage certificate under section 14(c) of the FLSA meets certain conditions in order to pay an individual with a disability subminimum wage. One of these conditions requires each 14(c) provider to ensure their clients receive Career Counseling and Information and Referral Services (CCIR). The Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR) has been mandated by WIOA to provide these services.  If you would like to request CCIR services from OVR, please complete the following form and submit it by email at ccirrequests@mdrs.ms.gov.  After your request is received, a member of our staff will contact you to schedule a date for the provision of CCIR services.”
