Legislation and Policy



Legislation


The Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) administers legislation that directly influences the lives of individuals with disabilities and their families. RSA plays critical roles in both the development of federal regulations that bring legislation into effect and in monitoring that these federal regulations are followed.



Rehabilitation Act of 1973
as amended by title IV of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA)


WIOA was signed into law on July 22, 2014. This legislation and its implementing federal regulations are designed to strengthen and improve our nation's public workforce system and help Americans with significant barriers to employment, including individuals with disabilities, into high quality jobs and careers and help employers hire and retain skilled workers.

The Rehabilitation Act of 1973 as amended by title IV of WIOA (PDF 791KB) establishes programs and initiatives administered by RSA.


Other Legislation


Other legislative sources for RSA programs and initiatives are:

  • The Randolph-Sheppard Act, P.L. 74-732, as amended by P.L. 83-565 and P.L. 93-516; 20 U.S.C. Sec. 107 et seq.
  • The Helen Keller National Center Act of 1984, as amended by P.L. 99-506; 29 U.S.C. 1901 et seq.

Regulations


RSA issues regulations to clarify, build upon or otherwise implement statutory requirements pertaining to certain programs under the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended by WIOA. These "program regulations" establish requirements that grantees (e.g., State VR agencies) must follow. Additionally, grantees must follow the joint final rules published by the U.S. Departments of Labor and Education in the Federal Register on August 19, 2016.

Sub-Regulatory Policy


RSA develops and promulgates a variety of sub-regulatory guidance intended to provide additional direction in support of program legislation and regulations. RSA issues the following types of guidance:

Sub-Regulatory Guidance



RSA establishes policy and prescribes the methods found necessary for the proper and efficient administration of the programs funded under the Acts for which RSA is responsible. These acts are: the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended by title IV of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act; title I of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act jointly administered by RSA, the Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration and the Department of Education’s Office of Career Technical and Adult Education; the Randolph-Sheppard Act, as amended; and the Helen Keller National Center Act of 1984 (the Acts). More information about these Acts is available on the Rehabilitation Services Administration Legislation page.

Policy is a formal statement, determined by the RSA commissioner, from among one or more legally supportable options, establishing conditions, relationships or conduct which are held to be necessary for:

  1. implementing or substantiating the letter and/or intent of relevant law and regulations; and
  2. ensuring the proper management by such laws and regulations.

You may access lists of

  • all sub-regulatory policy by date issued,
  • all sub-regulatory policy by title, or
  • sub-regulatory policy by type.



  • Sub-regulatory Policy by Type


    • Policy Directives
      A Policy Directive (PD) is a formal statement of required action(s) or condition(s) that must be carried out or met by state VR agencies or other RSA grantees in order to be in compliance with the Acts. A PD is legally enforceable because it is based on a statutory or regulatory provision.
    • Technical Assistance Circulars
      A Technical Assistance Circular (TAC) is a formal statement of guidelines and/or suggested methods to satisfy statutory, regulatory or policy requirements. A TAC addresses those areas of program requirements for which state VR agencies or other RSA grantees have flexibility in determining precisely how such requirements are to be met.
    • Information Memoranda
      An Information Memorandum (IM) transmits information to grantees who operate formula or discretionary grant programs authorized by the Acts, and to individuals who are responsible for monitoring these programs.
    • Memoranda of Understanding
      A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) documents an understanding between RSA and another entity.
    • Other Documentation Supporting RSA Programs
      Other miscellaneous documents which support programs, such as standard attachments to a Grant Award Notification (GAN).
