(This amendment adds $1.0 million the second year from the general fund for the Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) program that will be used to match $3.7 million in additional federal funding. Language is modified to reflect the additional funding. The VR program assists individuals with disabilities get ready for, find, and keep jobs by providing training, placement, and job-coaching services along with workplace accommodations (i.e. assistive technology). As demand for services have exceeded available resources all service categories were closed on November 1, 2014, and waiting lists for services are growing.)
