Declaration of Order of Selection (OOS)

MODIFICATION TO DECLARATION OF ORDER OF SELECTION FOR VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION SERVICES ISSUED MAY 9, 2014

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 15, 2012, effective July 2, 2012, the Department's Director declared that projected resources were not adequate to serve all individuals in priority categories defined in California Code of Regulations, title 9, section 7053, and that resources were adequate to serve Priority Category One, regardless of the date of application, Priority Category Two, limited to applications submitted by June 30, 2013, and Priority Category Three, limited to applications submitted by March 30, 2011, and,

Whereas, on June 14, 2013, the Department's Director declared that effective July 1, 2013, individuals in Priority Category One and Priority Category Two who apply on or before June 30, 2014, and individuals in Priority Category Three, who applied on or before June 15, 2013 including individuals who were current on the Waiting List at that time shall be served effective July 1, 2013, and,

Whereas, the Department has since reviewed projected resources and projected costs for state fiscal year 2013-14, which started July 1, 2013 and ends June 30, 2014, as provided by California Code of Regulations, title 9, section 7052(a), and determined that projected resources are inadequate to serve all individuals but sufficient to serve additional individuals with disabilities, Priority Category Three, who applied on or before May 9, 2014, and have not withdrawn their application or been removed from the Waiting List due to failure to confirm continued interest in receiving vocational rehabilitation services.

Now, therefore, I, Joe Xavier, Director of the Department of Rehabilitation, declare that effective May 9, 2014, other eligible individuals with disabilities, Priority Category Three, who applied on or before May 9,2014, including individuals who are current on the Waiting List, shall be served in addition to those individuals declared eligible by Declaration dated June 14, 2013.
