Declaration of Order of Selection (OOS)

MODIFICATION TO
ANNUAL DECLARATION OF ORDER OF SELECTION
FOR VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION SERVICES
ISSUED JUNE 21, 2010

Whereas, on August 18, 1995, the Department of Rehabilitation (Department) first declared that the Department was under Order of Selection for Vocational Rehabilitation Services and determined that no priority categories could then be served, and,

Whereas, on June 30, 2009, effective July 20, 2009, the Department's Director declared that projected resources were not adequate to serve all categories and that resources were adequate to serve those priority categories that include those individuals with the most significant disabilities, also known as Category One, regardless of the date of application, those individuals with significant disabilities, also known as Category Two, who applied on or before June 30, 2010, and those individuals with disabilities, also known as Category Three, who applied on or before May 1, 2009, and,

Whereas, on June 22, 2009, the Department was authorized to expend one-time American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009 funds to assist individuals with disabilities, especially those with the most significant disabilities, to prepare for, obtain and maintain employment; and to make an investment in the future to increase the capacity to generate outcomes, and,

Whereas, on June 21, 2010, I declared that individuals in priority category one, regardless of application date and individuals in Category Two who applied on or before June 30, 2011, and all other eligible individuals who had applied on or before May 1, 2009, shall be served effective July 7, 2010, and;

Whereas the Department has since reviewed projected resources and projected costs and determined that projected resources are inadequate to serve all individuals but may serve additional individuals in Category Three so long as they applied on or before March 30, 2011.

Now, therefore, I, Anthony "Tony" P. Sauer, Director of the Department of Rehabilitation, declare that effective May 11, 2011 other eligible individuals, known as within Category Three, who applied on or before March 30, 2011, shall be served in addition to those individuals declared eligible by Declaration dated June 21, 2010.

Dated: April 27, 2011
