The purpose of this audio conference is to provide an overview of the obligations of State Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) agencies to serve as mandatory partners in the statewide workforce investment system. The audio conference will also describe selected initiatives by State VR agencies to enhance employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities through collaboration with One-Stop Career Centers and other entities participating in the workforce investment system and participation in the Disability Program Navigator initiative sponsored by the Social Security Administration and the U.S. Department of Labor.
This audio conference will also describe congressional initiatives (past and present) to enhance physical and programmatic accessibility for persons with disabilities. This portion of the audio conference is designed to help State VR agencies and others prepare for the additional roles and responsibilities they may be expected to carry out.
