PA OVR Order of Selection (OOS) – Overview Webinar

Wednesday, July 31, 2019

OVR will explain the PA OVR Order of Selection. Under federal law, state vocational rehabilitation programs that do not have sufficient funding or personnel to provide services to everyone who is eligible must set priorities to serve those with the most significant disabilities. The Department of Labor & Industry’s (L&I’s) Office of Vocational  Rehabilitation (OVR) has been operating under this prioritization, called an order of selection, since March 1, 1994. Pennsylvania expects to receive less federal supplemental funding for the vocational  rehabilitation program, and requests for services have outpaced  available resources. The state must amend the vocational rehabilitation services plan to ensure continuation of services. As a result, OVR temporarily closed the order of selection and created a waiting list for new customers, effective July 1, 2019.  PowerPoint
