North Carolina Division of Services for the Blind (DSB) is responsible for the prompt and equitable handling of referrals of individuals for Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) Services. This includes timelines for making good faith efforts to inform individuals of application requirements (On-Line DSB-4004-VR Rehabilitation Application with instructions) as well as for gathering information necessary to initiate an assessment for determining eligibility and priority for services. It is the Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor’s responsibility for making initial contact with individual referrals as soon as possible but within thirty (30) calendar days of the date the referral is received.
