On August 28, 2002, President George W. Bush issued an Executive Memorandum as part of his New Freedom Initiative which directed federal agencies to work together to build a one-stop interagency web portal for people with disabilities, their families, employers, service providers, and other community members. The full text of this memorandum may be found at:
DisabilityInfo.gov is the result of this collaborative effort. You may visit the website by clicking on either the icon or the link below:
