VR100 logo2020 brings the 100th anniversary of Vocational Rehabilitation. The Smith-Fess Act of 1920 went into law on June 2, 1920. This was the first federally funded program to assist individuals with disabilities that did not acquire their disability from serving in the military.  

The Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) has launched their VR 100 webpage. They plan to share a theme each month that focuses on innovative programs and services. VR 100 will include success stories featuring consumers, customers, and businesses. They plan on hosting two major events, watch for these coming soon.  https://www2.ed.gov/policy/speced/leg/rehab/vr100/index.html#intro
