Overview

The Rehabilitation Council of Texas (Council) is federally mandated by the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended in 1992, and advises the Texas Workforce Commission on the policy, scope and effectiveness of vocational rehabilitation services.

The Council wants to hear from the citizens of Texas about your experiences with vocational rehabilitation services, recommendations for improvements, and whether you would like a Council member to attend a local group or organizational meeting relating to vocational rehabilitation issues.
