The Minnesota Rehabilitation Association

Promoting ethical and state of the art practice in rehabilitation

We are a member organization of professionals working in the field of vocational rehabilitation.  Our members are employed in both the public and private sectors (for profit and non-profit).  We currently are about two hundred members strong and represent the entire state of Minnesota.

The Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) currently resides in the U.S. Department of Education, where it has since the U.S. Department of Education became a Cabinet-level Department.

The Commissioner of the Rehabilitation Services Administration is a Presidentially-appointed individual who is confirmed by the full U.S. Senate and is almost always an individual with a significant disability.

Senate bill S. 1356, the reauthorization of the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) and the programs authorized by the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, (VR), includes legislative language that would move the Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) from the U.S. Department of Education to the U.S. Department of Labor.
