brs: The Vocational Rehabilitation Program

The Vocational Rehabilitation Program

Connecticut Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) program can help individuals with disabilities to prepare for, find and keep a job.
We offer individualized services for persons with disabilities who are eligible for VR and provide supports in planning for and achieving their job goals.
To be eligible for the VR program, an individual must have a significant physical or mental condition which poses a substantial barrier to employment, and must require VR services in order to prepare for, find and succeed in employment.
The VR program serves persons with all disabilities except legal blindness. Individuals with legal blindness are served by the Bureau of Education and Services for the Blind; their website is located at
The VR program is supported by a combination of state and federal funds. To learn more about the vocational rehabilitation program, go to
Order of Selection
Please note: On October 1, 2018 Connecticut VR entered into Order of Selection.
Under Order of Selection, priority will be determined during the eligibility process based on how significantly your disability impacts your ability to work.
