Supporting Information for the RSA-911 Data

Information on this page supports the data required for the RSA-911 file. This information is designed to be used by state Vocational Rehabilitation agencies who are responsible for collecting the data. For any given fiscal year, the RSA-911 data contains a record of demographic and programmatic data for each person who exited the Vocational Rehabilitation program in that fiscal year.

Policy Directives

VR agencies will begin submitting RSA-911 data consistent with PD-16-04 for PY 2017, which begins July 1, 2017. By July 1, 2017, each VR agency must ensure that:
