Assistive Technology and Transportation Loan Guarantee Program
Financial Institution Partnership Opportunity with California Department of Rehabilitation
The California Department of Rehabilitation (DOR) is seeking to identify financial institutions, including community-based nonprofits authorized to function as a financial institution, that are interested in partnering to implement state-funded Assistive Technology and Transportation Loan Guarantee programs.
The DOR has issued a Request for Information (RFI), which is not a commitment of funding, but will help the DOR develop a contracting process with one or more financial institutions to offer Californians with disabilities low-interest loans for assistive technologies, including modified vehicles. Dedicated funding to guarantee 2 percent loans is held by the State Treasurer’s Office on behalf of the DOR. By responding to this RFI, financial institutions will be added to a distribution list of interested parties.
The last day to submit a response is July 31.
The DOR’s Independent Living Section is part of California’s independent living network, which includes 28 independent living centers and the State Independent Living Council. The DOR administers the program in California and provides technical assistance and financial support for the independent living centers.
