Update on State Government Alignment


Effective July 1, 2023, Iowa Vocational Rehabilitation Services will no longer be part of the Iowa Department of Education and instead will become a division inside Iowa Workforce Development. This change is being made as part of a broader state government realignment to bring together entities that work with similar subject matter – in this case, helping Iowans find jobs. 

The move to IWD will have no direct impact on how IVRS interacts with the people it serves. Iowans with disabilities should expect to continue receiving the same quality services from the same counselors as before – in addition to smoother access to job services provided through IowaWORKS.
