The RESNA Technical Assistance Project has compiled information on state financing activities, one of the four State Level activities to which states must dedicate a minimum of 60% of their funding under the Assistive Technology Act of 1998, as amended. That information is found in the following sections:
- Alternative Financing Programs
Under the AT Act of 1998, as amended, states can support alternative financing programs to purchase AT through a low interest loan fund, an interest buy-down program, a revolving loan fund, a loan guarantee program or other program. This link provides Information about existing Alternative Financing Programs.
- Feasibility Studies for Alternative Financing
The AT Act of 1998, as amended allows statewide AT programs to conduct an initial 1-year feasibility study concerning an alternative financing system. This link provides information about planning and conducting a study.
The National Assistive Technology Technical Assistance Partnership is a cooperative agreement between the U.S. Department of Education and RESNA. The grant (Grant #H224B050003; CFDA 84.224B) is funded under the Assistive Technology Act of 1998, as amended and administered by the Rehabilitation Services Administration, Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services at the U.S. Department of Education.
