Roger H. Glick
Nova Science Publishers, Jan 1, 2006 - Law - 173 pages
Statistics show that one of every five Americans suffer from a disability. Whether the disability be mental or physical, proper care is required for that person to live a healthy and independent life. This book covers many areas where state and local levels of government interact on programs for Americans with disabilities. This includes government funding for health care providers and benefit plans, on placing the elderly or mentally challenged in proper facilities, institutions, and housing programs, and various financial programs created for the disabled.
