Program Overview

 

The Lac Courte Oreilles (LCO) Vocational Rehabilitation program offers vocational rehabilitation services to American Indians with disabilities residing within Sawyer County.

Our program provides a variety of individualized services to Native Americans with disabilities, the goal being to increase self-sufficiency by obtaining and maintaining employment.

LCO Vocational Rehabilitation is an eligibility-based program funded by a grant under Section 121 of the Rehabilitation Services Act administered by the U.S. Department of Education, Rehabilitation Services Administration. Section 121 of the Rehabilitation Services Act was created to promote and provide funding of vocational rehabilitation services specifically for Alaskan Natives and American Indians with disabilities. Participation in an American Indian Vocational Rehabilitation program does not exclude participation in the State of Wisconsin Division of Vocational Rehabilitation Program. An individual may choose to apply to either program, or possibly receive services from both.
