We are celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the Vocational Rehabilitation Program!
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Vocational Rehabilitation Program. President Woodrow Wilson signed the Smith-Fess Act of 1920, also known as the Industrial Rehabilitation Act and referred to as “The National Civilian Vocational Rehabilitation Act,” into law June 2, 1920.
The OSERS Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) will be celebrating 100 Years of VR throughout 2020. To that end, we have launched a dedicated webpage to house anniversary content.
We encourage you to view and bookmark the VR 100 webpage, where you will currently find the kick-off podcast from OSERS Acting Assistant Secretary Mark Schultz, VR100 graphics, signature block and the hashtag #VR100Years to use as your agency and organization promote the year. New information will be added to this page throughout 2020.
We look forward to celebrating this important milestone with all our VR stakeholders!
