2019 Transition Summer Programs


Nebraska VR (Vocational Rehabilitation) in conjunction with the Nebraska Department of Education Office of Special Education requests proposals for the development and implementation of innovative short-term programs to provide career exploration and personal development opportunities for transition students with disabilities during the summer of 2019. The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) mandates that VR agencies set aside 15% of their budgets for pre-employment transition services. One of several initiatives in the area of pre-employment transition services includes this RFP. Funding is contingent on the availability of federal dollars. Nebraska VR intends to contract with a limited number of qualified applicants for a period up to 5 months (April 2019- August. 2019) to develop and implement Pre-Employment Transition Services for eligible and potentially eligible students with disabilities, aged 14-21 years enrolled in school during the 2019-2020 school year. As the state-federal vocational rehabilitation program, Nebraska VR maintains a dual customer approach, helping individuals with disabilities prepare for, obtain and maintain competitive, integrated employment while helping businesses recruit, train and retain employees with disabilities.
