This past weekend, Disability.gov launched a newly designed, clutter-free website, making it easier for people with disabilities, their families and others to find disability programs and services in their communities.

Visitors can now use one of two ways to find resources; they can type a word or phrase into the Search Box or select a subject from the “Information by Topic” menu on the left side of the home page. The site’s intuitive navigation also enables visitors to further narrow their search results by location, subtopics, audiences and disability types.

“With so much information available in one place, visitors can easily get overwhelmed, especially individuals and families who are new to the disability community,” said Federal Program Director Kevin Connors. “Using feedback from our audience, we found a solution that reduces the challenge of finding information on a large Web portal.”

Disability.gov is the federal government website for comprehensive information on disability programs and services in communities nationwide. Individuals with disabilities, their families, caregivers and others are connected to more than 14,000 resources from federal, state and local government agencies, academic institutions and nonprofit organizations. New information is added daily across 10 main subject areas – Benefits; Civil Rights; Community Life; Education; Emergency Preparedness; Employment; Health; Housing; Technology and Transportation.  READ MORE
