We value the personal connection we make with each consumer we work with, that’s why we think it’s important to provide in-person and local support. Pennsylvania Assistive Technology Foundation (PATF) has contracted with a few organizations to provide a local contact that can perform outreach and spread awareness of the PATF loan programs. These organizations are referred to as Funding Assistance Coordinators (FACs).

The FACs can answer questions about the loan programs, disseminate brochures, the loan application, newsletters and other PATF materials. FAC staff can also offer assistance with completing a PATF loan application. FACs may have information about other regional and statewide funding resources that can be used in conjunction with a PATF loan, or in place of a loan, to purchase assistive technology devices and services.

We do not have a local FAC in Zone 5 (light orange) or Zone 6 (light blue). Please contact the main PATF office for information and support. If possible, we will connect you with a local representative.
