The Training and Services Programs Division administers ten programs under four statutes: the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, the Randolph-Sheppard Act, the Helen Keller National Center Act and the Assistive Technology Act of 2004. The ten programs are a mix of competitive, discretionary grants, state formula grants and direct appropriations. The Division houses two units: the Training Programs Unit that administers the rehabilitation training and special demonstration programs and the Service Programs Unit that administers direct service-related programs and projects.
TSPD staff carries out the following activities in administering these programs:
monitor grants, including required on-site reviews of grants under the Projects With Industry program, and provides technical assistance;
review and approve AT state plans and state agency licensing agreements;
conduct discretionary grant competitions and process grant awards;
coordinate arbitrations for the Randolph-Sheppard program;
review and analyze data, prepares reports including the annual summary of the vendors and vending facilities; and
work with grantees to develop program performance measures, which are used to evaluate and monitor grantees.
