Summary Paragraph: Working to improve services for people with
disabilities across the county, this project would employ three Disability
Program Navigators (DPNs), with one dedicated to each
of the three full service One Stop centers.
In addition, the project would produce and distribute an outreach video
that would provide a universal orientation to one stop services for the
disabled. This video would highlight the
many functions of the DPNs, the available assistive
technologies, and specific services for the disabled. The state of
