The Council of State Administrators of Vocational Rehabilitation is composed of the chief administrators of the public rehabilitation agencies serving individuals with physical and mental disabilities in the States, District of Columbia, and the territories. These agencies constitute the state partners in the State-Federal program of rehabilitation services provided under the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended. The Council’s members supervise the rehabilitation of some 1.2 million persons with disabilities. Founded in 1940 to provide input into the State-Federal Rehabilitation Program, the Council is the only national organization whose sole purpose and function is to advocate for the Public Vocational Rehabilitation Program. The organization meets in full session a minimum of twice yearly, to communicate on issues of concern within the field of rehabilitation. Much of the work of the Council is carried on through Standing Committees. In addition, Task Forces concerned with problems of a more transitory nature are convened on an ad hoc basis. OUR MISSION

To maintain and enhance a strong, effective and efficient national program of public vocational rehabilitation services which empowers individuals with disabilities to achieve employment, economic self-sufficiency, independence, and inclusion and integration into our communities. PURPOSE

To serve as an advisory body to other associations on matters pertaining to the Program and the Council’s mission. To provide a means of communication and joint action with other organizations in the health, education, welfare, and manpower training fields relating to the Council’s mission. To support and participate in research and demonstration projects for the improvement of vocational and other rehabilitation services for persons with disabilities.

CSAVR has created a Deaf/Hard of Hearing/Late Deafened/& Deaf Blind (DPN) network inviting state vocational rehabilitation (VR) leaders (State Coordinators for the Deaf/Supervisors/Managers) to quarterly 2 hour virtual calls to address challenges and successes in VR as well as to speak to best practices in the field. Director Mayes from the State VR program in Alaska, Bedarius Bell (State Coordinator for the Deaf) from the state of Alabama chair and moderate the DPN.

The DPN had its first quarterly call on March 3, 2021 with up to 40 States involved. Ultimately, its about quality outcomes in competitive and integrated employment and making sure states create an environment that is “Deaf Friendly”. Go CSAVR for stepping up to the plate!
