Dr. Rayna Sage and Lillie Greiman are conducting a one-year project exploring how personal assistance services (PAS) are provided in rural areas. Specifically:

- What strategies do PAS workers use to overcome barriers delivering rural PAS services?
Census data will help answer these questions. Unpublished data indicates rural areas have fewer personal assistance services workers, compared to people with disabilities than urban areas.
