As you may be aware, the 25% mandatory Alternative Financing Program funding set-aside language for the State Assistive Technology Act was removed from the Labor, Health and Human Services (LHHS) bill. The LHHS bill was approved at FY 2010 Funding levels through the rest of this fiscal year.
The South Carolina Assistive Technology Program (SCATP) sends a special thank you to everyone who wrote emails, faxed letters, and made phone calls to US Congressmen. Your efforts made all the difference! We also want to thank our Congressmen for supporting such a fiscally responsible program.
SCATP looks forward to continuing to provide assistive technology options and resources to South Carolinians with disabilities, their caregivers and the professionals who serve them for many years to come.
Best Wishes for a Happy Holiday!
