Vocational Rehabilitation Research and Training Center (VR-RRTC)

The Institute for Community Inclusion (ICI) at the University of Massachusetts Boston and its partners, the Center for the Study and Advancement of Disability Policy and InfoUse, are pleased to announce the receipt of a five year Cooperative Agreement from the National Institute on Disability Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR) and the Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) of the U. S. Department of Education to develop a Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Vocational Rehabilitation (VR-RRTC).

The VR-RRTC will conduct research addressing the employment service delivery structures for individuals with disabilities, investigate “best practices” in certain critical areas, and provide training and technical assistance directed at improving VR services and employment outcomes for people with disabilities.
