Over the last quarter, from December to March, UATF approved 27 loans for Utahn's with disabilities to purchase assistive technology. Most loans went to hearing aids and adpated vans, though any AT device is eligible. Loans are through Zion's bank with interest rates half of prime - around 1.63%.
UATF also gives small grants - up to $250 - to help with the purchase of AT. Eight small grants were given last quarter to buy devices such as iPads for communication needs. Grants for iPads require an evaluation by a professional. All grants are given to those below poverty level.
