In the State of Rhode Island, the VR program is located in a health and human services agency, and within that the VR program is located in a state agency primarily concerned with vocational rehabilitation and other rehabilitation of individuals with disabilities.
For Vocational Rehabilitation State Grants, the Designated State Agency (DSA) is the entity which administers state plan or supervises its administration. For this grant, the DSA is Rhode Island Office of Rehabilitation Services.
The Designated State Unit (DSU) - which is responsible for VR service delivery, policy formulation and implementation , and allocation and expenditure of funds - is the same as the DSA for this grant award.
