Client Assistance Program (CAP)

The Mississippi Client Assistance Program (MSCAP) is a federal grant to the State of Mississippi to provide advocacy services for clients and client applicants of the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation, Vocational Rehabilitation for the Blind, and the Independent Living programs.

MSD is the administrator of this federal grant as designated by the past five Governors of the State of Mississippi.

All of these programs are a part of the Mississippi Department of Rehabilitation Services (MDRS).

There is no fee charged for any service provided by the MSCAP. Statewide services are provided on a non-discriminatory basis without regard to race, color, sex, religion, disability, or national origin.
