Strategic & State Plans

In 2014, the federal government passed the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). WIOA is designed to give job seekers easier access to employment, education, training, and support services needed to succeed in the labor market, and to match employers with the skilled workers they need to compete in the global economy.

WIOA aligns core education, training, and employment services under a statewide one-stop service delivery system. In Florida, these services are provided by the Department of Economic Opportunity, CareerSource Florida, and the Department of Educationís Divisions of Vocational Rehabilitation, Career and Adult Education, and Blind Services. We have developed a Unified State Plan for Employment Services that describes how we will work together to prepare potential employees for the workforce and fulfill the needs of employers.

Comprehensive Statewide Needs Assessment

WIOA requires VR agencies to assess the rehabilitation needs of people with disabilities within their state. The Comprehensive Statewide Needs Assessment (CSNA) must be completed in partnership with the State Rehabilitation Council every three years. The results of the CSNA shape agency and program planning. Florida VR is pleased to share with you its recently developed CSNA, which will guide planning for Program Years 2019-21. If you have any questions or comments related to the CSNA report, please email them to

The Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) State Plan was VR's contract with the federal government explaining how VR helps people with disabilities find employment. The State Plan was submitted to RSA each year to obtain federal funding for providing services to our customers.

2014-16 VR Strategic Plan

The VR Strategic Plan is the guiding plan used to manage VR's day-to-day operations. Using the RSA State Plan as its guide, the VR Strategic Plan is updated yearly to help VR stay on track with its vision and mission. Each year, objectives that have become part of the normal operations of the agency are moved off the list to make way for new objectives that will keep VR moving in a positive direction.

The plan has an "At a Glance" (PDF) version that is available for you to download.
