SKIL to administer Kansas Assisitive Technology Loan Program

logo with lady-smallPARSONS, Kan. -- The SKIL Resource Center, based in Parsons, has contracted with the University of Kansas to administer the Kansas Assistive Technology Loan Program.

Federal and state funds are utilized to help individuals with chronic health problems or disabilities obtain a variety of equipment that can be used at home, school or on the job.

Jeannette Grau was recently hired to manage the financial empowerment program. She will be working with personnel at AT access sites, located in Oakley, Salina, Wichita, Topeka and Parsons. Sara Sack is the director of the statewide Assistive Technology Program and Sheila Simmons is the coordinator. SKIL oversees two of the five AT access sites in Kansas.

CEO Shari Coatney said the loan program can help with the purchase of assistive technology equipment ranging from hearing aids to home modifications. The process can include the identification of alternate funding sources and a financial literacy aspect designed to establish or improve an individual’s credit rating.

A new web page is under construction where applications can be made online. SKIL Media is helping develop a marketing plan. In the meantime, more information is available by calling 1-800-KAN DO IT or the Parsons AT Site at 620-421-6551.
