Town Hall Meetings for the TWC Vocational Rehabilitation Services Comprehensive Statewide Needs Assessment (CSNA)

Groups audience: 
The Rehabilitation Council of Texas and the Texas Workforce Commission’s (TWC) Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) divisions will hold five town hall meetings in July 2017 to inform the Comprehensive Statewide Needs Assessment (CSNA). The CSNA is a triennial assessment that describes the vocational rehabilitation needs of Texans with disabilities and the VR services that assist them to gain employment.
The CSNA has three primary aims:
  1. To identify unserved or underserved people with a disability
  2. To describe the current delivery of VR services across Texas
  3. To suggest how to improve VR services
Each town hall will have two sessions for convenience according to local time zone.
