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.

Letter to all Customers with Open Cases
The Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) wishes to notify you of some upcoming changes to the existing state rules concerning the administration of Vocational Rehabilitation in Colorado.
DVR invites you to review the rule language that is being proposed. Please CLICK HERE to see the proposed draft rules. If you have any comments or feedback you wish DVR to consider as part of this process, please send them to Voc.Rehab@state.co.us.
"The Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) wishes to make the public aware of the proposed Federal Fiscal Year 2014 State Plan. We welcome your review of the state plan and invite you to share your comments and feedback as part of this process. Please send your thoughts to Voc.Rehab@state.co.us."
The Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) is hosting a series of public comment meetings and invites you to share your perspectives and ideas regarding proposed wait lists that will be implemented under an “Order of Selection”. DVR also wishes to make the public aware of an associated policy change, affecting individuals who may be placed on proposed wait lists. These proposed wait lists are due to increasing expenditures for the provision of goods and services to assist individuals with disabilities in obtaining employment.
We deeply regret the disruption that these proposed wait lists may cause Coloradans with disabilities eligible for vocational rehabilitation services.
Please be aware that, effective April 22, 2013, any individual determined eligible for DVR who is not already working under an approved Individualized Plan for Employment (IPE) will be placed on a wait list for services regardless of the level of significance of the individual's disability.
While DVR is unable to predict how long the proposed wait lists will remain in effect, we continue to work with our Colorado Department of Human Services (CDHS) leadership to closely monitor the financial situation and associated budget solutions to determine when individuals placed on wait lists can again begin to receive services.
We appreciate your patience as we work through this issue.
The following link will take you to DVR's proposed policy (Chapter 7, Section 7.3) describing how individuals are placed on wait lists. Additional information and details asking for your feedback related to these proposed wait lists will be available shortly; please check this website often for new postings.
You are also welcome to send your comments to CDHS_Voc.Rehab@state.co.us by April 22, 2013..
DVR has activated a wait list effective immediately. Information about this action and who it affects can be found in the News section of this website. Please check the News section in the future for updates.
