Florida Rehabilitation Council
Helping Employ Florida
The Florida Rehabilitation Council (FRC) welcomes you to our website. The council’s primary purpose is to be a strategic partner with the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (VR). Council members offer guidance and advocacy intended to improve vocational rehabilitation services; we often vote as a council to forward recommendations for VR consideration on important or emerging issues.
