State Disability Coalitions on Assistive Technology

The fifty states have federally funded or non-profit programs to help disabled residents obtain Assistive Technology (AT) devices. Assistive technology is simply any device that a disabled person can use to assist them in learning, making their environment more accessible, performing a job in the work environment, increasing their independence or otherwise improving their quality of life. Included in this are motorized wheelchairs and scooters, mobile bases for custom chairs.

Eligibility Requirements

Requirements vary by state and coalition organizations.

Application Process

State assistive technology coalitions are generally information and referral sources that do not provide funding for assistive devices. They are best used as a resource for information, providing assistive technology demonstrations, and conducting product research, as well as a source for education about AT and advocacy.
