Assistive Technology Loan Fund:
The Assistive Technology (AT) Loan Fund helps improve the quality of life for individuals with disabilities through a flexible loan option program that allows them to purchase needed AT to improve independence and productivity which will decrease the need for public support. This option may allow customers to access a lower interest rate and/or longer term repayment timelines based on their individual needs. Each loan recipient is legally obligated to pay their loan back per the signed loan documentation. The State guarantees 90% of this loan while the commercial bank covers the remaining 10% guarantee.
