We are DVR. The best candidates. The best support.
Colorado offers a strong, diverse workforce you may not even know about. These men and women have a range of skills and abilities, and they could really help your business grow - if you only knew where to find them.
DVR is committed to helping our employer partners find candidates who are skilled, loyal, and committed to your success. Even after placement, employers and employees get ongoing support from DVR's professional staff, including job training, guidance on the ADA regulations, and information on disability and employment guidelines. We can also help with financial incentives and facilitation of tax credits.
Across Colorado, too many workers with proven skills are currently left out of the workplace. As Colorado's leading placement organization for people with disabilities, DVR is working to change this by bridging talent and ability so companies and employees succeed.
The Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) became part of the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment (CDLE) on July 1, 2016. With the move to CDLE and the implementation of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), DVR revised its state rules for the DVR General Program, Business Enterprise Program and Independent Living Services under the Code of Colorado Regulations (CCR).
A period of public comment was conducted in October, 2016. All comments received were reviewed prior to implementing the final state rule language that will move forward to the Secretary of State’s office for promulgation. All comments received along with DVR’s responses can be found here: DVR State Rule Public Comments.
On August 19, 2016, the US Department of Education, Rehabilitation Service Administration published updated regulation directing the implementation of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) within State vocational rehabilitation programs.
DVR received a number of comments from stakeholders interested in shaping DVR's implementation of WIOA. DVR reviewed all comments prior to implementing the final policy language on September 19, 2016.
