Iowa Department for the BlindThe Iowa Department for the Blind is the state agency responsible for providing most of the services Iowans who are blind need to live independently and work competitively. . Because the Department is funded primarily through state and federal tax dollars, most of the services it offers are provided to eligible Iowans at no cost to them. Department services and programs include the state Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped; vocational rehabilitation services; Independent Living rehabilitation services; the Adult Orientation and Adjustment Center; the Business Enterprises Program; the Aids and Devices Store; computer training; and public education and in-service training. In addition, Project ASSIST With Windows offers tutorials, instruction, and training materials for sale worldwide - not just to Iowans.
