Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. Senate Committee on Labor and Public Welfare.
The 1972 annual report of the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare (DHEW) on Federal activities related to the administration of the Vocational Rehabilitation Act presents statistics demonstrating a 12 percent increase in persons rehabilitated over fiscal year 1971. Special efforts were directed toward rehabilitating disabled public assistance recipients. The Federal cost of vocational rehabilitation for the fiscal year was $631.3 million. The greatest number of persons in the vocational rehabilitation program were less than 20 years old. The second largest group served was the 24-34 year age group. Most of the vocational rehabilitation clients are from low income groups. The basic support programs serve the blind and visually disabled, deaf and hard of hearing persons, alcoholics, disabled public offenders, mentally ill, narcotic addicts, mentally retarded, disabled elderly, and social security disability applicants. Special priority groups considered in the report are the last six groups listed. Reports on special projects are included. Most of the information presented pertains to the number of people and the costs involved in the programs. Additional information requested from the Secretary of DHEW by Senator Jennings Randolph (West Virginia) is appended. (AG)
