State Plan

NH Vocational Rehabilitation is currently working on updating VR Portion of the NH Combined State Plan for 2016-2019. This work began based on a recent directive from the Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA). The timeline for submitting these changes is fairly short – March 15, 2018. As a result we are packing a lot of activity into this month.

Additional public meetings will be held for the public to comment on the larger combined state plan. If you have comments about the VR portion you are welcome to attend one of these sessions.

What is the State Plan?

In order for a State to run a Vocational Rehabilitation Services program (as authorized under the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended), the State must first develop a State Plan. The State Plan demonstrates the State’s commitment to administer the Vocational Rehabilitation Program in compliance with federal statutory, regulatory and policy requirements.

The Plan also describes the planning and implementation activities related to providing Vocational Rehabilitation services in the State.
