Client Assistance Program (CAP)

Purpose



Program Office: Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA)

CFDA Number: 84.161A
Program Type: Formula Grants
Also Known As: CAP


Program Description


The purpose of the Client Assistance Program (CAP) is to advise and inform applicants and individuals eligible for services and benefits available under the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Rehabilitation Act), as amended by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), and title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), including students with disabilities under section 113 and individuals with disabilities employed at subminimum wage under section 511 of the Rehabilitation Act. In addition, applicants and eligible individuals may be provided advocacy and representation to ensure their rights in their relationship with projects, programs, and services to protect their rights provided under the Rehabilitation Act. In addition to providing assistance and advocacy under the Rehabilitation Act, a CAP agency may provide information on the assistance and benefits on title I of the ADA, especially those who have traditionally been unserved or underserved by the vocational rehabilitation program, with respect to services that are directly related to facilitating the employment for applicants or eligible individuals.


Types of Projects


The Governor of a State must designate an entity within the State to provide CAP services to help applicants or individuals eligible for services pursue concerns they have with programs funded under the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended by WIOA. The governor may designate a public or private entity to operate the CAP.
