Vocational Rehabilitation Program

The Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe’s new Vocational Rehabilitation Program is designed to provide employment and educational guidance to eligible American Indians and Alaskan Natives. We work with individuals with barriers. 

Here is the criteria:

  • Must be enrolled with a Federally-recognized Indian Tribe or Alaska Native Village.
  • Documentation that applicant has a physical or mental disability that results in a barrier to employment and that will require services to achieve employment.
  • You have to want to work!
  • Reside in service area (includes the area within the boundary of the Hoko River and Sappho to the west, the Straits of Juan de Fuca to the north and McDonald Creek, between Port Angeles and Sequim to the east.
  • Determination of whether an applicant is using federally illegal substances (including marijuana and medical marijuana) or prescription medications not prescribed to them.
