Funding

Funding for the cost of home modifications, assistive technology, or services needed by consumers who experience a disability are not directly funded by ATP. Funding may be available from numerous programs. Examples include disability-related organizations, government programs, and non-profits, etc.

Each resource has their own eligibility requirements. Requirements may include age, residence, disability, income, request, etc. Funding amounts also vary and it may require several resources to fund what is needed.

After receiving your Service and Device Application ATP’s Resource Coordinator will:

1

Research resources

based on:

  • Your disability
  • What devices and services you request
  • Program eligibility requirements
  • Funding availability

2

Make connections

to potential resources that we partner with. These resources may cover or supplement the cost of what you need.

3

Send you

a list of other potential resources that you may qualify for.
