q. 2. The timing of transition to extended services

Current Narrative:

WIOA extended the SE time period from 18 to 24 months. The Commission has created protocols for and has made extended services for youth available when needed as required by WIOA.

Extended services may be provided to youth with MSD for a period not to exceed four years, or until the individual reaches the age of 25 and no longer meets the definition of a "youth with a disability" (whichever comes first) with the funds reserved under §363.22. SE services for adults will not exceed 24 months, unless an exception is granted. The Commission requires a third-party commitment to designate a long-term support provider. Since 2004, the Extended Employment Services (EES) program has been housed under IDVR and along with Medicaid are the two providers of long-term funding for extended services in Idaho. A supported employment participant may only be transitioned to long term support based on an assessment of rehabilitation goal achievement and job stability. Periodic monitoring occurs to ensure that each client receiving SE services is making satisfactory progress.
