GAO Report Available on the Vocational Rehabilitation Funding Formula

Jan 08, 2010 State vocational rehabilitation (VR) agencies play a crucial role in helping individuals with disabilities obtain employment. In fiscal year 2008, the Department of Education (Education) distributed over $2.8 billion in grants to state agencies, using a funding formula last revised in 1978. Questions have been raised about whether this formula is outdated, allocates funds equitably, and adequately accounts for state agencies' performance. GAO was asked to examine the extent to which the current formula meets generally accepted equity standards, present options for revising the formula, and identify issues to consider with incorporating performance incentives into the formula. Complete report available.
