New Jersey Commission for the Blind & Visually Impaired


The New Jersey Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired (CBVI) and its State Rehabilitation Council (SRC) will be conducting three public forums statewide. The function of the SRC is to advise and work in partnership with the Vocational Rehabilitation Unit at CBVI. The public forums will be held to gather input from consumers, former consumers, professionals, community based organizations, and other interested parties to assist in the development of the State Plan for Vocational Rehabilitation which will be submitted to the Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) in Washington DC. Your concerns and comments are extremely important to us and will assist in better serving persons who are blind and visually impaired who seek to obtain, retain, or advance in employment. Come make your voice heard!
