Community Rehabilitation Provider (CRP) Information
Community Rehabilitation Providers (CRPs) are approved vendors who provide a variety of employment services to the individuals served by the Bureau of Rehabilitation Services as well as the Department of Health and Human Services.
Community Rehabilitation Provider Approval
Effective November 2012, a CRP can be approved to provide services following two different paths to accreditation. Also effective November 2012, the Maine Bureau of Rehabilitation Services no longer accepts a State of Maine Mental Health License as a means of qualifying for CRP approval status.
Accredited through the Maine Bureau of Rehabilitation Services (BRS) In-State Approval Process.
Accredited through the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF)
Agencies have the option of maintaining CARF Community Employment Services accreditation rather than in-State approval. Please note, for the sake of consistency, those CRPs approved through CARF will be required to submit additional documentation to BRS during and between periods of CARF accreditation/renewal.
Doing business with DHHS and BRS
Once a CRP has been accredited by CARF or BRS in-state approval they may negotiate a contract or agreement with DHHS and/or BRS to become a contracted employment services provider.approved under of these licensing categories, they would then need to negotiate a contract or agreement with DHHS and BRS in order to become an approved provider.
