Subject - DVR Training Grant STAR Payment Delay

The Department of Workforce Development including the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) will begin to use a new billing system on October 1, 2015. Because of this change, there will be delays of some DVR training grant payments.

Effective Date

September 14, 2015

This Replaces

This is new information about processing DVR training grants for the fall term.

Why is this change being made?

To accommodate the STAR related fiscal shutdown and provide information and instructions to staff, DVR consumers and in-state public and private schools

What are the Changes?

The census dates for the majority of in-state schools is September 14, 15 or 16th. This is the same time period when all payments will stop and not be paid prior to the implementation to STAR on October 1st. Since POs to in-state schools are not sent to the school, please follow the process below to make the most efficient use of time and resources.

A notice has been prepared to share with DVR students attending the fall semester. A copy of that notice is included in this email for your information. DVR Consumers should make arrangements to cover school costs until the training grant funds can be disbursed by the school. This may not occur until mid-October. Please share this notice via e-mail with your consumers.

Late Fees

DVR will cover the cost of any late fees that result in the later training grant payment. DVR consumers should share a copy of a bill showing the late charge to DVR prior to November 15, 2015 so DVR can make a payment before the end of the fall term to the school. This would be a separate payment.

If you have questions, please contact your DVR school liaison or Kathleen Enders at
