The NRTC is the only U.S. Department of Health and Human Services-funded center focused on employment outcomes of persons with blindness or low vision.
Whether you are interested in employing someone who is blind or visually impaired or have a visual impairment yourself, this site will serve as your headquarters for resources and technical assistance.
Our center receives funding from the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) to conduct research focused on improving employment. We hold NIDILRR’s Rehabilitation Research and Training Center (RRTC) on Employment of People who are Blind or Have Low Vision. Some of our recent RRTC research projects are featured below.
