As announced by the U.S. Department of Education:

“The Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) provides notice to State Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) agencies and other stakeholders of the Frequently Asked Questions: Criterion for an Integrated Employment Location in the Definition of “Competitive Integrated Employment” and Participant Choice. 

Today, the Federal Register posted this document for public inspection. The document is scheduled to publish in the Federal Register tomorrow, March 9, 2021. At that time, RSA will seek public comment on this proposed guidance that clarifies the Department’s policy on the criterion for an integrated employment location in the definition of “competitive integrated employment,” for purposes of the State VR Services program. The proposed guidance clarifies, updates, and supersedes the Department’s guidance titled Frequently Asked Questions: Integrated Location Criteria of the Definition of “Competitive Integrated Employment” issued on January 17, 2017.”
