Welcome to the Nebraska Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired (NCBVI), the state vocational rehabilitation agency for the blind. We work to help blind and visually impaired Nebraskans achieve full and rewarding lives through independent living skills and assisting with finding employment in Nebraska and across the country.


NCBVI provides the training, counseling, and resources needed for a positive understanding of blindness and visual impairment. Our high expectations include employment and fulfillment in all aspects of life. Our website provides information about the Commission and also about blindness in general: for blind and visually impaired individuals, their families, businesses seeking job candidates to fulfill Nebraska employment needs.


Message from the Nebraska Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired Board of Commissioners:

We, blind consumers, worked to establish a separate agency for the blind in Nebraska; and only we can assure that it continues. It is, therefore, crucial that consumers participate in Board meetings and give both Commissioners and the Executive Director ideas and feedback. Interested people being involved will keep Nebraska's service system vibrant.
