DECLARATION OF ORDER OF SELECTION FOR VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION SERVICES

Whereas, on August 18, 1995, the Department of Rehabilitation (Department) first declared that the Department was under Order of Selection for Vocational Rehabilitation Services and determined that no priority categories could then be served, and,

Whereas, on June 21, 2011, effective July 6, 2011, the Department's Director declared that projected resources were not adequate to serve all consumers within all categories and that resources were adequate to serve those priority categories that include those individuals with the most significant disabilities, also known as Category One, regardless of the date of application, those individuals with significant disabilities, also known as Category Two, who applied on or before June 30, 2012, and those individuals with disabilities, also known as Category Three, who applied on or before March 30, 2011, and,

Whereas, the Department has reviewed projected resources and projected costs for state fiscal year 2012-13, which starts July 1, 2012 and ends June 30, 2013, as provided by California Code of Regulations, title 9, section 7052(a) and determined that projected resources continue to be inadequate to meet all the projected costs for the remainder of the fiscal year; and that projected resources remain sufficient only to continue to serve individuals with the most significant disabilities, who apply on or before June 30, 2013, individuals with significant disabilities, who apply on or before June 30, 2013, and, all other eligible individuals with disabilities who previously applied on or before March 30, 2011.

Now, therefore, I, Anthony "Tony" P. Sauer, Director of the Department of Rehabilitation, declare that effective July 2, 2012, priority categories that include individuals with the most significant disabilities, also known as Category One, who apply on or before June 30, 2013, and individuals with significant disabilities, also known as Category Two, who apply on or before June 30, 2013, and other eligible individuals, known as Category Three, who applied on or before March 30, 2011, shall be served.
