DisabilityInfo.gov is a comprehensive Federal site for people with disabilities, their families, employers, veterans, workforce professionals and many others. Here is one-stop access to information for you. Information of interest to you and your family, to employers, and service providers on civil rights, education, employment, housing and transportation, and more is now available at this site. Now you can get information from many government agencies, all in one convenient place. This site is helpful for those with disabilities as well as those in administrative positions. For those who are disabled, there are several headings which lead to many more links loaded with information. These include employment, education, housing, transportation, health, civil rights and community life. Each heading also provides links to News & Events, Research, and Grants & Funding.

For those in a more administrative role, the site offers a Press Room which contains helpful information and statistics for the media, press releases, educational materials and more. In addition, there are also ready-to-publish drop-in news briefs and articles that can be printed in your own publication.
