Purpose of Program:
Many individuals with disabilities do not have the private financial resources to purchase the assistive technology (AT) they need.
In addition, programs such as Medicaid, Medicare, and vocational rehabilitation cannot meet the growing demand for AT.
Financial loan services, such as alternative financing programs (AFPs), offer individuals with disabilities affordable options that can significantly enhance their access to AT.
These programs offer alternatives to the traditional payment options of public assistance and out-of-pocket financing and maximize independence and participation in society by individuals with disabilities through the acquisition of AT.
