Assistive Technology Financing


Assistive Technology Event Calendar

Self-Help periodically holds Assistive Technology pop-up events. Click here to view upcoming events.

Thanks to a federal grant, Self-Help offers loans for assistive technology that are more affordable than ever. Our loans can cover almost any equipment to boost quality of life for a person with disabilities—like hearing aids, vehicle upfits and more. To help identify people who need loans, we partner with the NC Assistive Technology Program and others who serve NC residents with disabilities.

Self-Help staffer David Beck (pictured speaking with colleague) shares in this blog why he is a strong advocate for assistive technology loans.
