The Texas Workforce Commission is accepting applications to serve on the Advisory Committee for Purchasing from People with Disabilities. The committee comprises 13 members who advise TWC on matters relating to the Works Wonders program, also known as the State Use Program, which assists individuals with disabilities in achieving independence through productive employment.
Upcoming Advisory Committee positions include representation from the following:
One individual from an organization that advocates for persons with disabilities
Two individuals who are employed by a community rehabilitation program
Two individuals with disabilities (one of whom is employed by a CRP)
The TWC disabilities committee meets at least twice a year. At least once each fiscal year, the advisory committee will review and, if necessary, recommend changes to program objectives, performance goals and measures and criteria for participation.
The committee members serve staggered four-year terms and may not serve more than two terms. Committee members include representatives from CRPs, advocates, individuals with disabilities and a representative from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission.
TWC is accepting applications through June 5 with applications available to print and mail and/or email online. Selected members will serve a term through Aug. 1, 2021.
