The Washington State Rehabilitation Council for the Blind (SRC-B) is an advisory group of volunteers, appointed by the Washington State Governor, who provide counsel and guidance to the Department of Services for the Blind (DSB.) The SRC-B reviews, evaluates, and makes recommendations to DSB on its plans, policies, and activities to insure that blind or visually impaired people in our state receive the most effective and efficient rehabilitation services possible.
In addition to providing direction to the Director of DSB on behalf of the public and consumers, the SRC-B also advises and reports to the Governor; makes recommendations to the State Legislature about services that impact the lives of blind people; and, works closely with other state councils, agencies and organizations to enhance the services, opportunities, and rights of Washingtonians who are blind.
The SRC-B is authorized by the federal Rehabilitation Act under the federal Workforce Innovation Opportunity Act, and in Washington State statutes RCW 74.18.070 through 74.18.100.
