Vocational Rehabilitation

Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) is a federal-state program that supports people with disabilities to prepare for, obtain, maintain, and advance in meaningful employment by providing a range of services based on an individual’s employment goals. Texas Workforce Solutions-Vocational Rehabilitation Services Counselors work closely with job seekers to determine an employment goal, and then identify and arrange for the high-quality services that lead to successful employment.

Who may be eligible?

You may be eligible for vocational rehabilitation services if you:

  • Have a disability which results in substantial barriers to employment
  • Require services to prepare for, obtain, retain or advance in employment
  • Are able to obtain, retain or advance in employment as a result of services

The Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) Program is an integral part of the state’s comprehensive workforce development system and services are delivered in collaboration with Local Workforce Development Boards, ISDs, colleges, community rehabilitation providers and numerous other partners.
