Assistive Technology Financing Loan Program

New Federally Funded Program for Persons with Disabilities to Acquire Assistive Technology

The Assistive Technology Financing Loan Program offered through the Assistive Technology Program for the District of Columbia is a low-interest funding source for District of Columbia residents with disabilities and seniors to purchase assistive technology devices and services.  Many different items are considered assistive technology, including hearing aids, communication devices, computers, specialized software, home modifications and more. Persons with disabilities and their family members, guardians or advocates living in the District of Columbia can apply to purchase assistive technology that will allow them to live and function independently at home, school, work or in the community. Individual loan amounts can range between $500 to $10,000 with terms of 6 months to 5 years and a low 4% interest rate.
