Updates and revisions have been made to DisabilityInfo.gov at http://www.disabilityinfo.gov.  This website, a collaborative effort among twenty-two federal agencies, was developed to provide access to information and resources that enable people with disabilities to fully participate in the workforce and in their communities.

DisabilityInfo.gov contains comprehensive information on cross-cutting issues in areas including employment, benefits, housing, transportation, health care, education, civil rights, and technology.

With the input of many state and local government agencies over the past couple of months, more than 2,000 new links to state-level resources have been added to DisabilityInfo.gov.  The site's enhanced State and Local Resources Map now offers greater access to information about programs and services available in the states and communities where individuals with disabilities live, work, attend school, or are seeking employment.
