VR is proud to be a national leader in the public vocational rehabilitation program
VR consumers become tax-payers instead of tax consumers when they become employed, reducing their reliance on government disability benefits.
Many receive health insurance coverage through their new jobs and no longer rely on Medicaid.
A great return on investment
Competitively employed consumers pay about $4 in taxes for every $1 spent on their rehabilitation.
Employed consumers repay the cost of their vocational rehabilitation in less than 5 years. That’s a 21 percent annual rate of return on taxpayer investment.
* Since rehabilitation is a continuous process that often takes a period of years, SCVRD serves some of the same consumers in successive years.
