Hello Vocational Rehabilitation Providers:

Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities (OOD) has received a positive reception to the new Critical Need Rate (CNR) service implemented on October 1, 2022.  The CNR was developed by the Bureau of Services for the Visually Impaired (BSVI) to support and encourage enhanced statewide service coverage, especially for individuals who are blind or visually impaired and those who are Deaf or hard of hearing.  Please find attached the most updated list of services and counties which qualify for the CNR.

Thank you.
