Vocational Rehabilitation Provider Locator Tool
TWC’s Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) Provider Locator is now available. Staff and customers can easily search for VR providers by zip code, location radius, service category, and contract type. This search tool helps identify service providers near VR customers.

The federal government requires the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) to work on the Texas Combined State Plan. This plan spans four years and outlines how the state will reach its workforce goals.
