One time small grants for Assistive Technology Services for People with Disabilities (Richard West Assistive Technology Advocacy Center (ATAC) of Disability Rights New Jersey

The Richard West Assistive Technology Advocacy Center (ATAC) of Disability Rights New Jersey has two exciting announcements focused on improving access to assistive technology for New Jersey residents with disabilities.

ATAC is pleased to announce our 2019 Small Grants RFP. ATAC is providing one-time funding to enhance the scope of existing assistive technology services available to people with disabilities in New Jersey.

The grants are available under the following activities:

  • Device reutilization programs - provide for the exchange, repair, recycling, or other reutilization of assistive technology devices, which may include redistribution through device sales, loans, rentals, or donations.
  • Device loan programs - provide short-term loans of assistive technology devices to individuals, employers, public agencies, or others seeking to meet the needs of targeted individuals and entities.
  • Device demonstration programs - demonstrate a variety of assistive technology devices and assistive technology services (including assisting individuals in making informed choices regarding, and providing experiences with, the devices and services), using personnel who are familiar with such devices and services and their applications. Please note: this could include innovative uses of technology to support individuals with disabilities.
  • Transition training - conduct training on the provision of assistive technology services for individuals transitioning from school to career, from early intervention to school, or from a restrictive environment to a non-restrictive environment.
