EFFECTIVE NOVEMBER 2, 2020
DECLARATION OF ORDER OF SELECTION FOR VOCATIONAL
ISSUED JUNE 30, 2020
Whereas, on August 18, 1995, the Department of Rehabilitation (Department) first declared that the Department was under Order of Selection for Vocational Rehabilitation Services and determined that no priority categories could then be served; and,
Whereas, on June 30, 2020, as the Department’s Director, I declared that projected resources were not adequate to serve all individuals in priority categories defined in California Code of Regulations, title 9, section 7053; and that effective July 1, 2020, resources were adequate to serve individuals in Priority Category One and Priority Category Two who apply on or before June 30, 2021, and individuals in Priority Category Three, who applied on or before August 31, 2019, including individuals who were on the Waiting List at that time; and,
Whereas, the Department has since reviewed projected resources and projected costs for state fiscal year 2020-21, which started July 1, 2020, and ends June 30, 2021, as provided by California Code of Regulations, title 9, section 7052(a), and determined that projected resources are adequate to meet projected costs for state fiscal year 2020-21 for all three Priority Categories and a modification to the declaration is warranted as such: projected resources are sufficient to serve eligible individuals with the most significant disabilities, Priority Category One, eligible individuals with significant disabilities, Priority Category Two, and all other eligible individuals with disabilities, Priority Category Three, who apply on or before June 30, 2021 and have not withdrawn their application or been removed from the Waiting List due to failure to confirm continued interest in receiving vocational rehabilitation services.
Now, therefore, I, Joe Xavier, Director of the Department of Rehabilitation, declare that effective November 2, 2020, other eligible individuals with disabilities, Priority Category Three, who apply on or before June 30, 2021, including individuals who are currently on the Waiting List, shall be served in addition to those declared eligible by Declaration dated July 1, 2020.
