As announced by the Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA):

“The Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA), in partnership with State Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) agencies and stakeholders across the country, administers programs that assist nearly one million individuals with disabilities each year through the State VR Services and the State Supported Employment Services programs. As a result of RSA’s ReThink VR Performance initiative, RSA committed to sharing data that illustrates the success of the VR program. 

In July 2019, RSA issued its first Infographic highlighting positive trends related to the employment outcomes that individuals served by the VR program achieved in Federal fiscal years 2017 and 2018. Today, RSA is issuing a second Infographic illustrating more positive trends in the VR program related to the number of VR program participants who earned Measurable Skill Gains in Program Years 2017 and 2018, as well as the number of students with disabilities who received pre-employment transition services. Both Infographics also include the number of employment outcomes in the VR program in this Administration. 

RSA looks forward to sharing more Infographics that showcase the VR program’s success and we welcome your suggestions. Please email [email protected]. Thank you.”
