Assistive Technology Funding

Locating funding often creates a barrier to acquiring needed assistive technology devices and services.

While Tools for Life does not directly fund the purchase of devices, it is a resource for individuals with disabilities and their family members, staff, service providers, counselors, employers, and others to obtain information, borrow equipment on a trial basis, purchase selected equipment or software at discount prices, and more. The Tools for Life team also works closely with school personnel, family and related service providers and offers helpful information on related laws, policies, funding tips, and possible funding sources.
