Paying For Your Custom Assistive Technology
AT V-LINC our custom AT is designed and built by volunteer engineers and engineering student teams. However, V-LINC must pay for parts and supplies. Unless part of a special program, we ask those receiving projects to share in the cost for their custom tool. As of now, clients are asked to provide up to $250 to reimburse V-LINC for supplies (if supplies are less than $250, the client pays the actual cost). V-LINC is able to supplement project costs due to the generosity of our donors.
We realize funding for many can be difficult even with V-LINC's discount. Please find various ways to fund your AT below. Each program has its own requirements and application process. This list does not constitute a guarantee of funding or qualifications for funding. It is for information purposes only. Feel free to call V-LINC and we will be happy to assist you further. 410.554.9134
General Funding Sources
