Small Grants

Aid for the Purchase of AT

UATF offers small grants of up to $400 for Utahns with disabilities to purchase assistive technology devices. Grants are for Utahns with low income who are at or below 150% of federal poverty guidelines and have no other funding source. Current 150% federal poverty guidelines by household size and household income are shown below.

All grants must be approved by the UATF board BEFORE any purchases are made or work is done. Failure to receive approval will result in denial of the grant application. No grants will be approved retroactively.

Detailed information about the assistive technology device needs to be included (make, model, cost, where the item will be purchased), as well as any descriptive supporting documentation. Any grant for an AAC device including iPad or other tablet requires an evaluation by a qualified speech/language pathologist to ensure an individual has prior successful experience with the device and that it is being primarily used for communication.
