There are many resources available online for people with disabilities, but it can be hard to sort through them and find the most useful. Also, not many resources have been designed with rural communities in mind. That’s why we created the Rural Disability Resource Library, an online collection of resources specifically for rural people with disabilities, their families, service providers, advocates, and policy makers. The website connects people with information and tools to support the needs and interests of people with disabilities in rural places.
And don’t let the name fool you— many of the resources and tools on the Rural Disability Resource Library are also useful for people who live in urban areas as well.
The Rural Disability Resource Library includes resources from the RTC:Rural as well as a multitude of other resources, including the Association of Programs for Rural Independent Living (APRIL), the National Center on Health, Physical Activity and Disability (NCHPAD), the National Council on Independent Living (NCIL), the Association of University Centers on Disability (AUCD), and more.
