The Statewide Council for Vocational Rehabilitation (SCVR) is a consumer-controlled Council that collaborates and partners with the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR) in the establishment of programs for delivery of services to individuals with disabilities throughout the Commonwealth. The Council develops, reviews and approves the goals and priorities of State programs and makes recommendations for improvements as needed.
It is the policy of the Commonwealth of Kentucky that competitive integrated employment shall be considered the first and primary option for persons with disabilities of working age who desire to become employed, including those with the most significant disabilities. Simply put, it is the idea that everyone has the right to work!
The Kentucky Assistive Technology Loan Corporation offers low interest loans for qualified applicants with disabilities who need assistive technology.

AT is any item or piece of equipment (both low-tech and high-tech) used to improve and/or maintain independence in the home, at work, school or play.
The Committee of Blind Vendors consists of 11 elected members from across the state.
