(Atlanta) - GVRA is pleased to congratulate the Bobby Dodd Institute of Atlanta and Walton Options of Augusta on receiving the the Work Incentives Planning and Assistance (WIPA) grant through the federal Social Security Administration (SSA). GVRA previously provided WIPA services for a number of years to federal disability beneficiaries interested in a snapshot of how various work models could potentially impact benefits. This important work is in competent hands with GVRA's two Georgia partners.
