OPPORTUNITIES:

One thing quite often missed by those who are newly blind or visually impaired is the unusual number of OPPORTUNITIES AND ASSETS available to those who are disabled citizens of our country. Other than public domain entitlements, there are countless local, regional and national opportunities for persons with disabilities, such as grants, travel discounts and programs, scholarships, and reduced or discounted rates in a variety of activities and programs. Other options such as private agency low income housing may also match the need of a visually impaired citizen. Such things add up if utilized and are often overlooked. The list below only scratches the surface of the huge number of financial, material and public domain opportunities for persons who are vision impaired. Think about your needs and research the opportunities available to persons with disabilities; then go out and find some!
