About the Council
The Statewide Council for Vocational Rehabilitation (SCVR) is a consumer-controlled Council that advises the Kentucky Office of Vocational Rehabilitation. The Statewide Council for Vocational Rehabilitation reviews, analyzes, and advises the Kentucky Office of Vocational Rehabilitation on:
- eligibility, including order of selection,
- extent, scope and effectiveness of services provided by the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation,
- activities that affect or potentially affect the ability of individuals with disabilities to achieve rehabilitation goals.
Additionally, the Council is charged with conducting a review and analysis of program effectiveness and consumer satisfaction with the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation as well as other public and private entities that serve individuals with disabilities and use funds made available under the Rehabilitation Act. The Statewide Council for Vocational Rehabilitation has a partnership role with the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation.
The Statewide Council for Vocational Rehabilitation meets on a quarterly basis. The public is invited to attend all meetings. Reasonable accommodations and auxiliary aids are provided with a one week notice.
