Grant Award Information for H126A170080
For Vocational Rehabilitation State Grants, the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 as amended by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) provides states with some flexibility with respect to the organizational positioning of the program within the state structure. In the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the VR program is located in a labor and workforce agency, and within that in a designated state unit that is primarily concerned with VR or vocational 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 Puerto Rico Vocational Rehabilitation Administration.
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.
