Welcome to Employment Services & Special Programs (ESSP)
Welcome to the Department of Rehabilitative Services' Employment Services & Special Programs (ESSP) web site. The Office partners with community rehabilitation providers to provide employment and vocational services throughout the state. We provide long-term support fund management; standards oversight of Employment Services Organizations (ESOs); administration of the Economic Development Fund, and coordination and support of special programs such as, Deaf and Hard of Hearing. You can access all of our activities through the left-hand column.
In addition to our own activities, we have links to important partners and service providers. The Employment Services Organizations Directory provides a search capability for ESOs across the State and a direct link to a number of ESOs that maintain websites.
We are glad you chose to visit us and we hope the information here will assist you.
