Practices of States with Order of Selection

Order of Selection (OOS)

The Rehabilitation Act, as amended by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), requires the Vocational Rehabilitation program to serve individuals with the most significant disabilities first when there are not enough resources to serve everyone who is eligible for VR services. Individuals with the most significant disabilities are given a priority over those with less significant disabilities, a process called an "order of selection."
