Current Narrative:

Projections of types and numbers of employees needed are based on current caseload sizes, demographic information regarding the population of Hoosiers with disabilities, trends regarding number of participants served in recent years, and current initiatives. The budget and state allocation available also drive the determination for the number of staff that can be sustained within Vocational Rehabilitation (VR).  As of December, 2019, the Caseload Counselor to participant ratio is 1:118. VR has consistently hired 20-25 new counselors per year due to retirements, promotion of staff, and general turnover. The following are projections of the anticipated number of eligible individuals to be served under an IPE annually for each of the next five years.
