State Rehabilitation Council

The State Rehabilitation Council (SRC) was first authorized by the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 as amended in 1998 (referred to hereafter as the Act). Section 105 of the Act requires the state vocational rehabilitation agency to establish a council.  The council was initially formed on June 1, 1993. Council members are appointed by the governor and serve no more than two consecutive three-year terms. As required by the Act, the council is represented by the following:

  • Statewide Independent Living Council
  • Parent Training and Information Center
  • Client Assistance Program
  • Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor
  • Community Rehabilitation Program Service Providers
  • Business, industry and labor
  • Disability advocacy groups
  • Current or former applicants/recipients of vocational rehabilitation services
  • Office of Special Education, the state agency responsible for the Individuals with Disabilities Act
  • State Workforce Development Board

The council is responsible for reviewing, analyzing, and advising Missouri Vocational Rehabilitation regarding its performance on such issues as eligibility, services provided to consumers, and any other functions affecting people with disabilities.
