CBVH is now "NYSCB"

The Office of Children and Family Services Commissioner Gladys Carrión today announced that the New York State Commission for the Blind and Visually Handicapped has been officially re-named the “New York State Commission for the Blind” under legislation signed into law by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today. Its new official acronym is NYSCB.

“The Commission, which just celebrated its 100th anniversary, works every day with blind people of all ages to help them improve their lives and give them tools they need to succeed. With Governor Cuomo’s signing of this new law, their mission and scope of responsibilities are now better reflected in their new name and we continue our commitment to advance our positive approach,” said Commissioner Carrión.
