State Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) agencies are required to submit a State Plan describing the manner in which they administer the VR and Supported Employment programs in their states.
Information Memorandum, IM-09-02 (available in MS Word or PDF format), dated January 9, 2009, transmits the State Plan for Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) Services and the Supplement for Supported Employment (SE) Services, along with instructions for completion of the Plan and supplement. The preprint (available in the on-line RSA-MIS system and also in MS Word or PDF format) and additional instructions (in MS Word or PDF format) are also available.
All required updates and amendments constituting the FY 2010 State Plans and supplement must be submitted to RSA no later than July 1, 2009. Once RSA has completed its review and approval of the FY 2010 State Plans, we will notify agencies that the plans are approved as of October 1, 2009.
RSA has implemented an on-line submission process through the RSA management information system (RSA-MIS at http://rsamis.ed.gov) and is encouraging states to submit their State Plans on-line via the RSA MIS. States submitting their State Plans on-line should submit the entire preprint, including certification pages, and all corresponding attachments, regardless of whether they have been previously approved by RSA, that comprise a complete State Plan and Supplement for FY 2010. By submitting the complete State Plan this year, the RSA MIS will be able to capture all State Plan materials and maintain them electronically for use in subsequent years.
