Wisconsin's Rest Area Maintenance (RAM)

Wisconsin Rest Area Maintenance ProgramWisconsin's Rest Area Maintenance (RAM) Program has been in existence since 1987. The Program consists of 128 roadside sites in 39 counties in Wisconsin. The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) owns these sites and acts as the program administrator. WisDOT contracts with Rehabilitation for Wisconsin, Inc. (RFW) to provide program management services. WisDOT also contracts with 23 Community Rehabilitation Programs (CRPs) to provide the custodial care and landscape maintenance services at these roadside sites.

Guidelines for Proposals

  • Proposals which address Topics of Interest are encouraged, however, other topics related to the inclusion, choice, and employment of persons with disabilities are very welcome.
  • It is strongly preferred that programs are interactive and focused on adult learning techniques.  We encourage takeaways: solutions, ideas, and materials that attendees can take home.
  • Proposals may be either a breakout session or a workshop.  Breakout sessions are 75 minutes long; workshops are a 1/2 day.  Please keep in mind there are a very limited number of workshop slots available therefore if a topic proposal for a workshop is selected, we may ask for a shortened version to fit into a 75 minute breakout session.
  • All proposals must be submitted using this electronic form. The form must be completed in a single session (sorry it does not save progress). You may wish to print each page for your own reference.
  • Each proposal submitted requires a separate form. 
  • All proposals will be reviewed.  Notice of proposal acceptance will be sent no later than January 31, 2015.
  • Incomplete proposals will not be accepted and no proposals will be accepted after December 31, 2014.
