Grant

Multiple Sclerosis Foundation Assistive Technology Program

The Assistive Technology Program may help locate, partially fund, or provide full funding for one of a wide range of devices. These allow those with MS to function more independently in their daily lives, as well as more easily participate in recreational, educational, and vocational activities.

GiveTech.org

GiveTech was established to identify individuals whose disabilities leave them physically unable to use a computer through normal means (e.g. mouse and/or keyboard) but who remain lucid, who lack the financial ability to purchase the necessary computer input technology to allow them to use a computer, whose lives would be greatly improved by the ability to use a computer.

Association of Blind Citizens Assistive Technology Fund

Association of Blind Citizens will provide funds to cover 50% of the retail price of adaptive devices or software. The ABC board of directors believes that this program will allow blind and visually impaired individuals access to technology products that will have a significant impact on improving employment opportunities, increase the level of independence and enhance their overall quality of life.

Robbie Foundation (AAT Program)

The AAT Program is open to children with special needs who would benefit from adaptive equipment, assistive technology, therapy treatment and/or any other compulsory (or essential) item not cover by insurance or any additional funding resource.

Program

Maine Consumer Information and Technology Training Exchange (CITE)
