Webinar: Updates on Maine’s Adaptive Equipment Loan Program
Date: July 9, 2020
Time: 1:00 – 2:00 pm ET
Updates have been made to Maine’s Kim Wallace Adaptive Equipment Loan Program (AELP), the state’s low interest financing program for people with disabilities to give them more options for purchasing Assistive Technology (AT). AELP funds can be used to buy AT devices, adaptive equipment or to make home modifications. The program is now offering loans for non-adapted vehicles for Mainers with a disability who need transportation to return to work. Loans are also available to Maine business owners for the purchase, construction, or installation of adaptive equipment and AT to make their location more accessible for employees and customers. In the presentation we will discuss the loan application process and showcase some recent consumers and how they used their loan funds. Participants will have plenty of opportunity to ask questions about the AELP process.
