ACL is announcing a new Assistive Technology (AT) Alternative Financing Program (AFP) funding opportunity. The $700,000 one-year AFP grant will support the purchase of AT devices, including through a low-interest loan fund, interest buy-down program, revolving loan fund, loan guarantee, insurance program, or additional activities that result in the acquisition of AT devices.
This opportunity is open to a variety of organization types, including many of ACL’s aging and disability networks. Successful applicants must emphasize consumer choice and control and build programs that will provide financing for the full array of AT devices and services and ensure that all people with disabilities, regardless of type of disability or health condition, age, level of income, and residence, have access to the program. Applicants should also incorporate credit-building activities into their programs, including financial education and information about other possible funding sources.
ACL will host an informational call on this funding opportunity on Thursday, June 8, 2023 at 3:00 PM ET.
