The Arizona Secretary of State’s Office in collaboration with the Department of Economic Security (DES), Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) and the Governor’s Council on Blindness and Visual Impairment (GCBVI) proudly announces the launch of a web based information and referral service.  The database of resources, located at EYEKNOW.az.gov, provides information on products and services from local, regional and national providers that are available to people in Arizona who are blind, visually impaired, or have combined hearing and vision loss. 

This web based information and referral service is the next evolution of the print based “Arizona Resource Directory for Persons Who Have Vision, Hearing or Combined Hearing and Vision Loss” developed and distributed by DES/RSA.  Visitors to EYEKNOW.az.gov will be able to search for resources specific to the blind, low vision or combined hearing and vision loss populations.  Arizonans can research options in a variety of categories including education, products for daily living, employment, recreation and advocacy. 

The information at EYEKNOW.az.gov will be available to be printed for distribution to individuals without web access who can benefit from the information, products and services.
