The guide is intended to provide a practical source of information on financial resources for disabled individuals. Following an introductory chapter is a chapter discussing some fundamental principles useful in increasing the likelihood that a benefit will be awarded. Subsequent chapters contain information on financial assistance programs in seven areas: basic needs in the form of cash grants, housing, food, general basic needs, health, education, and employment. Provided for each program are the formal name and common name of the program, program purpose, major eligibility requirements, benefits, and additional comments which relate to filing an application. Among the programs covered are the Federal Employees' Compensation Program and State Workers' Compensation, Public Housing Program, Food Stamp Program, Community Action Agency Emergency Services, Medicaid, Basic Educational Opportunity Grants, and Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA). Appended is information on the federal region number for each state, federal information centers, federal regional offices for CETA information, federal VISTA/ACTION service centers, and federal regional offices for the small business administration.
