As a result of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), the Florida Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) has changed the way it engages businesses. VR established a business relations project which provides customized services to local businesses to help them recognize the value people with disabilities have and how to recruit and hire these individuals. By providing businesses customized services, these partnerships allow VR participants to obtain competitive integrated employment.
