Montana Assistive Technology Program
The Montana Assistive Technology Program (MATP) is a statewide AT Program that provides assistive technology information and services for people with disabilities.
MATP provides the following services free of charge:
A short-term AT Equipment Loan Program for individuals to borrow and try AT devices for evaluation purposes before purchasing
An AT Demonstration Center for individuals and/or groups to explore, see, and try various AT devices
An online Equipment Exchange forum for the reutilization of AT devices through giveaways, exchanges, and sales
- A low-interest Financial Loan program to allow individuals to purchase AT devices when other funding is unavailable
The MATP services are provided by a contract with DPHHS Disability Employment and Transitions Division, Vocational Rehabilitation. MATP is located within MonTech, a program of the University of Montana Rural Institute on Disabilities that serves all Montanans with disabilities and their supports.
MATP provides AT information and services in the areas of education, employment, community living, and telecommunications. MATP's services are consistent with the Rural Institute's mission of enhancing the independence, productivity, integration, and inclusion of individuals with disabilities through consumer responsiveness as defined in the AT act.
MATP is funded under the Assistive Technology Act of 1998, as amended.
