Benefits Information Training: Deciphering the Complexity

State and federal assistance programs can help people with disabilities go to work, pay the rent, take a class, get transportation, and save for the future. But navigating those benefit programs can be complicated for people with disabilities, for their families, and even for the agencies and organizations who support them.
