Contributed by Provi Sharpe, Director of Reuse and Emergency Management, MDTAP

The Multiple Sclerosis Foundation (MSF) Assistive Technology (AT) Program strives to educate and assist individuals with MS across the country about the myriad of AT options available and how to access these options. The MSF AT Program may provide an AT product, help locate a product, or help with funding for a wide range of devices that allow individuals with MS to function more independently in activities of daily living, as well as recreational, educational, and vocational activities.  For more information visit the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation or call (888) MSFOCUS (888) 673-6287

The United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) Elsie S. Bellows Fund is a national program operated by UCP that provides funds to individuals with disabilities for assistive technology equipment. Funding is not limited to individuals with Cerebral Palsy. However, individuals must apply through their local UCP Affiliate. The local UCP affiliate submits an application on behalf of the applicant to the UCP national office. Applications are then reviewed for funding by the Bellows Committee. For more information on the UCP Elsie S. Bellows Fund and to find your local UCP Affiliate please visit the United Cerebral Palsy or call (800) 872-5827
