q. 1. The quality, scope, and extent of supported employment services to be provided to individuals with the most significant disabilities, including youth with the most significant disabilities

Current Narrative:

The Idaho Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (IDVR) provides the full scope of Supported Employment Services (SE) to those Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) eligible customers with the most significant disabilities, who require extended services to maintain employment.  Supported employment services are available to individuals with the most significant disabilities, including youth with the most significant disabilities.

Supported Employment Services include the following:

Time limited services needed to include job coaching and communication with the employers, to support training while the individual is employed.  Continued funding of SE cases is contingent upon progress toward learning the essential functions of the job and/or fading hours of ongoing support to the level of employer satisfaction immediately prior to the assessment of initial stability.

Any other service that would be identified as requisite to the targeted supported employment outcome after placement ahead of transfer to externally funded ongoing support services.

SE may also include Customized Employment elements, after placement.

Youth Extended Services (YES) are available for qualifying youth in the absence of other ongoing support services available in the community.

Each customer’s IPE describes the timing of the transition into extended services, which is to be provided by the long-term support provider following the termination of time-limited services by IDVR.

Fifty percent of the Title VI-B (Supported Employment) grant will be reserved for youth with the most significant disabilities; the Division will set aside a 10% non-federal matching fund to meet the requirement of §363.23. For FFY 2022 this amount will be $15,000 (Title VI-B Youth). The corresponding adult SE grant does not require a set aside.

Supported Employment Services are delivered by CRPs throughout the State of Idaho. IDVR’s CRP quality assurance process is detailed in section (o)(5) of this plan.
