PDF files are used throughout this website.  While we try to avoid publishing PDF documents, unfortunately this is not always possible.  If you come across a PDF file that you are unable to use due to an accessibility issue we encourage you to contact us.  Our RuralAccess Coordinator will be able to assist you in determining what format would best suit your needs and we will do our best to provide you with a copy that you can easily access.
