DisabilityInfo.Gov Introduces New State and Local Resources Map to Assist Visitors in Locating Disability-Related Information Cl

Washington The federal government's one-stop Web site for disability-related information and resources DisabilityInfo.gov today unveiled a new feature, a state and local resources map, designed to assist visitors in finding disability-related information in their own states and localities.

While DisabilityInfo.gov is now well-known as a comprehensive source for government information at the federal level, this new feature enables users to search for disability service organizations at the state and local government levels, as well as federal offices close to home, in every state and U.S. territory.

"DisabilityInfo.gov provides Americans with disabilities a direct connection to information and resources they need to fully participate in the workforce and in their communities," said Karen M. Czarnecki, acting assistant secretary of labor for disability employment policy. "The U.S. Department of Labor and its partners in federal, state and local government are deeply committed to continue improving this award-winning tool in order to make disability-related information easily accessible to all Americans, especially in the communities where they live and work."

To use the new state and local resources map, simply select one of the nine subject tabs benefits, civil rights, community life, education, employment, health, housing, technology or transportation at the top of any DisabilityInfo.gov page. Then click the map on the right sidebar to find links in that subject area related to your state. You will be directed to easy-to-navigate information and numerous organizations and contacts.

DisabilityInfo.gov also offers a free subscription service to DisabilityInfo Connection, the site's quarterly electronic newsletter, as well as e-mail alerts on new information in a specified state. Additionally, the site features an online press room that contains news releases, links to research and statistics, and ready-to-publish news briefs and articles.

The award-winning DisabilityInfo.gov site connects visitors to information on a wide range of disability-related topics. Managed by the U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy, the site is a collaborative effort among 22 federal government agencies dedicated to making it the leading, one-stop federal resource for disability-related information. The site aims to provide nearly 50 million Americans with disabilities and others the national, state and local tools they need to pursue personal and professional goals.
