MATTERS NOT REQUIRING BOARD ACTION
New York State Rehabilitation Council – The Committee was provided with a panel presentation on the State Rehabilitation Council (SRC) which included an update on the 2017-18 activities and recommendations and the 2018-19 council priorities. The SRC was established to fulfill the requirements of the federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended and to advise the department on the provisions of vocational rehabilitation services. The council is comprised of twenty-one voting members and several non-voting members. They convene quarterly in-person meetings of the full Council in addition to monthly committee conference calls. As an advisory body, the SRC works collaboratively with ACCES-VR making recommendations that support the goals outlined in the New York State Plan required by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act.
