Connecticut Tech Act Project – Connecticut’s Assistive Technology Program
The Connecticut Tech Act Project’s mission is to increase independence and improve the lives of individuals with disabilities through increased access to Assistive Technology for work, school and community living.
The Connecticut Tech Act Project focuses on establishing programs throughout Connecticut that would help individuals with disabilities learn about and have access to Assistive Technology. Some of the programs included the low-interest Assistive Technology Loan Program, which still exists today, as well as the creation of Connecticut’s Assistive Technology Lemon Law.
All AT Act Programs are required to establish the following 4 State Level activities:
- Assistive Technology Demonstration
- Assistive Technology Device Loan Program
- Assistive Technology Reutilization Program (also known as recycling)
- Alternate Financing Program
The Connecticut Tech Act Project has established these programs in a variety of ways, including by partnering with agencies in the community, such as the NEAT Center at Oakhill, the Eastern Connecticut AT Center, Southern Connecticut State University Center for Adaptive Technology and more. You can learn about our partners in the Partner Agencies section of this website.
