Michigan Assistive Technology Loan Funds
The Michigan Assistive Technology Loan Fund allows people with disabilities and seniors (or their family embers) to purchase assistive technology devices or services, including modification of vehicles and homes. Loans may also cover cost of training to use the purchased equipment, warranties, and service agreements.
Assistive technology is defined as any item, piece of equipment, or device that enables an individual with a disability to improve individual independence and quality of life.
If you would like to apply for a loan to purchase any item or piece of equipment that will help you improve your independence and overall quality of life, contact the Michigan Assistive Technology Loan Fund at 1.800.828.2714.
The Michigan Assistive Technology Loan Fund was established by the Michigan Disability Rights Coalition (MDRC) through a grant from the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR). MDRC joined with United Cerebral Palsy of Michigan, the Option 1 Credit Union and disability organizations throughout the state to offer this innovative program.
