Indiana Vocational Rehabilitation Services
Vocational Rehabilitation Services (VRS), a program of the Bureau of Rehabilitation Services (BRS), provides quality individualized services to enhance and support people with disabilities to prepare for, obtain or retain employment. To learn more about VRS, visit their website: www.in.gov/fssa/ddrs/2636.htm.
If you are a current Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) consumer, contact your counselor to talk about career tracks offered at EGTI and how they may align to goals within your Individual Plan for Employment (IPE). If you are not yet working with VR but plan to seek vocational support through them, please schedule an intake appointment to complete the application and assessment process to determine your eligibility status. Keep in mind that not all individuals will qualify to receive VR support. For a list of VR office locations, please visit: Indiana Vocational Rehabilitation Services Offices.
Vocational Rehabilitation Order of Selection
The order of selection was implemented August 1, 2017. Individuals who had an Individualized Plan for Employment (IPE) in place prior to the implementation date will continue to receive services without disruption. Individuals who have applied or are eligible, but do not yet have an IPE in place prior to implementation, are subject to the order of selection.
Indiana’s Family and Social Services Administration has compiled a list of community resources for individuals, families, community service providers, and employment specialists looking for additional supports in the wake of the state’s order of selection implementation for vocational rehabilitation services.
Additional information can be found at the VR order of selection resource Web page.
