Description: Registration Deadline: March 14

The New Jersey Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVRS) and its State Rehabilitation Council (SRC) will be conducting public forums during the month of March. DVRS is a division within the Department of Labor and Workforce Development and provides services to eligible individuals with disabilities to achieve employment outcomes consistent with their strengths, priorities, needs, abilities and capabilities. The SRC provides oversight and advises the DVRS. The SRC is comprised of partnerships of people with disabilities, advocates and other interested persons, and it is committed to ensuring through policy development, implementation and advocacy that New Jersey has a rehabilitation program that is not only comprehensive and consumer-responsive but also effective, efficient and adequately funded. Your input during these forum(s) helps DVRS and SRC develop the State Plan as mandated by the WIOA, and to review topical issues impacting consumers, vendor communications and dialogue with employers. Your voice is extremely important to both DVRS and SRC and will help to mold program delivery and policy to ensure that people with disabilities receive rehabilitation services that result in employment.

Representatives from DVRS and the SRC will be available to provide information on available services, and various work incentive initiatives.
