Order of Selection
On May 3, 2021, Nebraska VR submitted to Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) an amended VR services portion of the Combined State Plan in an effort to formally open its Priority Group I - Individuals with the Most Significant Disabilities.
RSA reviewed Nebraska VR's amended State Plan to ensure conformity with the Rehabilitation Act and vocational rehabilitation regulations and notified the agency the amendments to the VR services portion of the PY 2020 Combined State Plan were approved.
During the fall of 2021, Nebraska VR removed all individuals from the wait list for Priority Group 2 which resulted in approval from RSA to have Priority Groups 1 and 2 Open with no wait list.
Though Priority Group 3 is closed in accordance with the Nebraska Portion of the State Plan, VR has also cleared all individuals from this Priority Group resulting in no wait list.
In summary, and in accordance with the Nebraska VR portion of the State Plan the agency's Order of Selection (OOS) now involves:
- Priority Group 1: No wait list
- Priority Group 2: No wait list
- Priority Group 3: Closed - Any individuals added to the wait list are removed within one week.
