Nevada Disability Services Unit: Cooperation, Collaboration, Coordination
The DWSS inter-local contract refers welfare recipients to VR programs for completion of vocational testing and assessment. The DSU has been collaborating with other reciprocal agencies in the delivery of service to individuals who need supportive services or assistance in activities of daily living. Working with the ADSD’s Independent Living program, and their recipient of the Assistive Technology Act of 1998 funds, allows for greater community involvement and co-sharing of responsibilities and costs. As such, the DSU and the Independent Living program continue to utilize their interlocal agreement to collaboratively case manage and cost-share goods and services that meet a particular need for an individual who is a mutual client of both the Independent Living and VR programs.
