Vocational Rehabilitation

A joint program between the U.S. federal government and all state and territorial governments that trains and provides other services to persons with disabilities in order to help them find jobs. Vocational rehabilitation programs work with both disabled persons and employers to find the best solution for all involved. The programs began as federal state partnerships in 1973, but some states had similar programs before then.
