Wisconsin Rehabilitation Council (WRC)

What is WRC?

The Wisconsin Rehabilitation Council or WRC (formerly State Rehabilitation Planning and Advisory Council) was officially established by executive order of the Governor in 1993.

Its purpose is to advise and assist the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) with the preparation of applications, the State Plan, the Strategic Plan, and amendments to the Plans, reports, needs assessments, and evaluations required by Title I of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (as amended).

WRC members are appointed to staggered three-year terms by the Governor of the State. The Administrator of DVR serves as an ex-officio member of the Council. Members of WRC consist of:

  • Individuals with physical, cognitive, sensory, and mental disabilities; and
  • Parents, family members, guardians, advocates, or authorized representatives of people with disabilities who have difficulty in representing themselves or are unable due to their disabilities to represent themselves; and
  • Current or former applicants for, or recipients of, vocational rehabilitation services.
