Purpose of Program:
Under section 6 of the Assistive Technology Act of 1998, as amended (AT Act), the Secretary is authorized to provide grants to support national activities to improve the administration of the AT Act.
The purpose of this program is to fulfill the requirement to support training and technical assistance to the entities funded under the AT Act to improve the effectiveness of their programs and to entities not funded under the AT Act to improve awareness of and access to assistive technology (AT).
Entities funded under the AT Act include comprehensive, statewide assistive technology programs (Statewide AT Programs) and protection and advocacy for assistive technology programs (PAAT Programs) that increase access to and acquisition of AT devices and services for individuals with disabilities.
The AT Act also authorized additional grants, in FY 2005, to support alternative financing programs (AFPs) that provide financial loans to allow individuals with disabilities and their families to purchase AT devices and services.
