Vocational Services

“Employment in the general workforce is the first priority and the expected and preferred outcome in the provision of publically funded services for all working age Iowan’s with disabilities.”

By employment we mean: regular or customized employment in the general workforce, where employees with disabilities are earning at least minimum or prevailing wages and benefits.

DHS’ goal is to unify and coordinate these efforts in conjunction with the Olmstead plan, MHDS Redesign, Iowa Medicaid, stakeholders and state agency partners so demonstrable improvement can be made in the number of persons with disabilities competitively employed in the community. This effort will include the evaluation of any new or innovative approaches that can be adopted to better help achieve the goal.
