Youth with disabilities who are 24 years or younger are prohibited from working under the 14(c) certificate based on regulations under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA).

The Vocational Services, Mobile Workforce and Special Needs Program participants fall under these regulations.

If the person is younger than 24 years old, a letter from the Oklahoma Department of Rehabilitation Services (DRS) stating the person is either ineligible for its services or has received services and the case has been closed must be included with the admissions application.

The purpose is to ensure youth with disabilities have met the following:

  • Received transition services
  • Applied to DRS and was found ineligible for its services
  • Applied to DRS, had an Individualized Plan for Employment (IPE) and worked toward an employment outcome for a reasonable period without success AND DRS has closed the case
  • Received career counseling and referrals to programs and other resources in the area

DRTC can assist in applying to DRS for services that assists the person identify, interview for and obtain community employment through our Employment Services Program.
