The Disability Programs Division is a comprehensive and countywide centralized disability management program, which provides professional consultation and technical support to County agencies and departments. In the development and administration of the County's disability management programs, we collaborate with stakeholders to develop strategies to overcome identified barriers. We continue to increase awareness and provide an understanding of federal and state disability laws, family and medical leave provisions, and other applicable statutes, through the design and implementation of countywide disability management training.

In partnership with County agencies and departments, we are committed to integrating employees with disabilities and medical conditions into a highly productive workforce environment.
