Has been able to help hundreds of Utahns with disabilities of all ages obtain loans and grants to purchase the assistive technology that allows them to be independent, productive and successful at home, at school, at work and in the community. Our goal is to assist Utah residents with disabilities by enhancing their quality of life through assistive technology.
The UATF offers small grants for Utah residents with disabilities to purchase assistive technology. Grants are for families or individuals who are low-income (at or below 150% of poverty level), and have no other funding source.
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 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 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.
Utah Assistive Technology Program serves individuals with disabilities of all ages throughout the state of Utah. Their job is to provide assistive technology devices and services as well as train university students, parents, children with disabilities and professional service providers about assistive technology.
