Assistive Technology Funding Guide

Assistive technology (AT) – including smart home technology – empowers people with disabilities to live more independently, to work, and to participate in the community. However, one of the leading obstacles for obtaining AT is finding the money to pay for it.

Pennsylvania Assistive Technology Foundation (PATF) wrote Funding Your Assistive Technology: A Guide to Funding Resources in Pennsylvania (508 Compliant PDF) to help people with disabilities, older Pennsylvanians, and their families navigate the complex web of funding options for AT devices and services in Pennsylvania so they can acquire the AT they want.

When using this guide, please keep in mind that programs, policies, and procedures are constantly changing. We have made every attempt to be as current as possible, but we cannot guarantee the completeness of the information in this guide.
