The Pennsylvania RAC was established in 1993 as mandated under the Rehabilitation Act Amendments of 1992. The Council provides citizen oversight to the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR) and shares its dedication to the empowerment of persons with disabilities, particularly those with the most severe disabilities, so that they may realize their goals with respect to employment, independence, and integration into society.
The Rehabilitation Advisory Council reviews, analyzes, and makes recommendations regarding all aspects of the vocational rehabilitation program in Pennsylvania to the State Board and to OVR's Executive Director. The Council actively monitors policies and programs to assure that they are customer driven and responsive to the identified needs of the individual, specifically, and of persons with disabilities in general. Customer satisfaction, timeliness of services, and satisfactory resolution of appeals are of particular areas of focus.
