RSA: Training and Service Programs Division (TSPD)

The Training and Services Programs Division administers several programs under four statutes: the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, the Randolph-Sheppard Act, and the Helen Keller National Center Act. The programs are a mix of competitive, discretionary grants, state formula grants and direct appropriations.

The Division consists of 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 and provides technical assistance;
  • 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.
