Vocational Rehabilitation Programs
Vocational Rehabilitation Programs are established by federal and state laws. They provide vocational rehabilitation services to all eligible persons without regard to
race, color, creed, religion, sex, disability, national origin or ancestry. Vocational
rehabilitation programming is primarily the responsibility of the state, except in
those areas where Section 121, American Indian Vocational Rehabilitation
Programs exist.
 
 
Tribal Vocational Rehabilitation Program
To supplement the services provided by State Vocational Rehabilitation agencies,
Section 121 of the Rehabilitation Services Act was created to promote and provide
funding for vocational rehabilitation services for Alaskan Natives and American
Indians with disabilities. Existence of an American Indian Vocational Rehabilitation
Program does not relieve the state of its responsibility to provide necessary services
to this population.
