Nevada State Rehabilitation Council

The mission of the Nevada State Rehabilitation Council (NSRC) is to help ensure that vocational rehabilitation programs (Bureau of Vocational Rehabilitation and Bureau of Services to the Blind and Visually Impaired) are consumer oriented, consumer driven, and that the programs' services and resources result in employment outcomes for Nevadans with disabilities.

The Council may assist you or others in the community in the following ways:

  • Help individuals with disabilities obtain services which may help them become employable.
  • Put employers in contact with individuals with disabilities who may fill their staffing needs.
  • Receive and relay client experiences about the state or the community vocational rehabilitation programs.
  • Receive and relay ideas about improving vocational rehabilitation services.

Council meetings are held at least quarterly, teleconferencing between Carson City and Las Vegas, so that members unable to travel may attend. Meeting locations and agendas will be posted approximately ten (10) working days before each meeting at: DETR Public Meetings
