In 1936, the Randolph-Sheppard Act (20 U.S.C. Section 107 et seq.) established the Randolph-Sheppard Vending Facility Program, more commonly known as Business Enterprise Program (BEP). The BEP provides persons who are legally blind with remunerative employment and self-support through the operation of vending facilities on federal and other properties.
This site is intended to provide information regarding the BEP, local and operator resources as well as training opportunities. Please browse this site and contact the NRTC on Blindness and Low Vision with any questions that you may have regarding the content.
