The state of Minnesota recently launched a new website dedicated to providing resources, information, and videos for deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals, according to an article in the Star Tribune. The new initiative was announced a day before a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Minnesota State Capital to celebrate the addition of two wheelchair ramps near gardens on the south side of the building.
The Minnesota Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services Division’s (DHHSD) website—funded with $88,000 set aside by the Legislature in 2017, according to the Tribune article—provides information on grants, assistive technology, and training as well as American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters, mentors, and support groups.
