Brief Description

National Accreditation Council for Blind and Low Vision Services (NAC) is the only international accrediting body devoted to serving organizations that provide programs for blind and low vision consumers. It is estimated that over 75,000 consumers received services from organizations accredited by NAC. NAC was born in the mid-1960's from the efforts of the American Foundation for the Blind to bring structure and best practices to agencies serving the blind. The Vocational Rehabilitation Administration, US Dept of Health, Education and Welfare, was a major supporter of AFB's efforts and united leading professionals and industry sponsors who recognized that "standards" do increase the consistency and quality of services provided.
