Current Narrative:

VR coordinates with Florida Independent Living Council, Inc. (FILC), and the Centers for Independent Living (CILs) throughout the state. Through memoranda of agreement with each of the 16 Centers, VR provides funding, outlines roles and responsibilities, and ensures cooperative planning. The CILs provide services that include work readiness and financial literacy training, which are available to out—of—school youth. VR and the Division of Blind Services (FDBS) are both partners in the agreement with FILC, and both provide funds for council activities outlined in the agreement.With the implementation of WIOA and particularly the Pre-Employment Transition Services, VR has approved and trained 342 community rehabilitation providers and other non-profit entities to provide one or more of the five required services as outlined in WIOA and Federal Regulations.
