What is it?
The Possibilities Grant was established for the sole purpose of purchasing assistive technology devices and services for people residing in North Dakota and Moorhead, MN who:
- Have a clearly established need for assistive technology,
- Have needs not met by other funding programs,
- and meet the eligibility criteria set forth in the application.
How are the funds used?
Individuals that are impacted by a disability and/or aging often have assistive technology needs and expenses that are above and beyond what insurance and other funding programs will cover. This is where the Possibilities Grant steps in. With the funds raised, we’ve been able to help eligible applicants purchase vision and hearing equipment, computer access tools, vehicle modifications, and communication devices. This program is intended to be a last resort, and cannot supplant other public funding avenues (e.g., vocational rehabilitation or public schools).
