> Interested applicants for assistance should remember that the board voted on April 16 to divide the total amount for convention assistance among those who apply. You will not get any more than that total amount of cash. This looks like last year’s form, which was constructed in a different way. Just remember that there is a ceiling on the amount of assistance you can receive this year.

Every day we raise the expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and our dreams.
