The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has reorganized and renamed its Web site that provides information to assist people with disabilities.

Target audiences for the site, www.disability.gov, include not only people with disabilities, but also their families, employers, caregivers, veterans, educators and anyone else seeking disability-related information.

The site is broken down into 10 subject areas:

  • Employment
  • Benefits
  • Transportation
  • Housing
  • Technology
  • Health
  • Benefits
  • Civil rights
  • Emergency preparedness
  • Community life

DOL said the site now includes content from 22 federal agencies and newly incorporates “social media tools” such as Twitter, a blog and social bookmarking. Visitors to the site can participate in online discussions and suggest resources that should be included.
