Declaration of Order of Selection

DECLARATION OF ORDER OF SELECTION FOR VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION SERVICES

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

Whereas, on June 15, 2007, the Department's Acting Director declared that projected resources were not adequate to serve all categories and that resources were adequate to serve individuals most significantly disabled, regardless of application date, as well as individuals significantly disabled, who applied on or before June 30, 2007, and that both categories would be served effective June 30, 2007, and,

Whereas, the Department has reviewed projected resources and projected costs, for this next fiscal year as provided by Title 9, California Code of Regulations, Sections 7052 and determined that projected resources are not adequate to meet all the projected costs of applicants and that projected resources remain sufficient only to continue to serve individuals who are the most significantly disabled, regardless of application date, and individuals who are significantly disabled and applied on or before June 30, 2009.

Now, therefore, I, Anthony "Tony" P. Sauer, Director of the Department of Rehabilitation, declare that effective July 1, 2008, priority categories that include all most significantly disabled individuals, regardless of the date of application, and individuals who are significantly disabled and who applied on or before June 30, 2009, shall be served.
