Chapter 26: Referral and Other Services

26.1 Definition

Referral and other services are defined as those services that are needed by VR consumers, but not available, from DBS. These services may be provided by other agencies through agreements developed with components of the Statewide Workforce Investment Systems, Texas Education Agency or any other agency.

26.2 Referral Services

Referral to other agencies is a valid VR service. If this service is planned or provided, it should be written into the consumer's IPE.

26.3 Other Services

Other services are those services that may be available through agreements with the One-Stop service delivery system under the Workforce Investment Act.

Additional information will be placed in this section as regulations are published and agreements are developed.
