• Assistive Technology Locating funding often creates a barrier to acquiring needed assistive technology (AT) devices and services. While ATP does not directly fund the purchase of devices, it is a resource for individuals with disabilities and their family members, school staff, service providers, counselors, employers, and others to:
    (1) Obtain information about AT and appropriate funding sources;
    (2) Borrow equipment on a trial basis (or device repair);
    (3) Purchase selected equipment or software at discount prices;
    (4) Consult with specialists regarding accessibility issues;
    (5) Receive training; and
    (6) Receive on-site support at home, in schools and on the job.
  • Electricity: Want Or Need? The Nebraska RentWise, Lincoln Network has provided training to over 1,000 residents since August 2008, teaching participants how to manage money, plan for housing costs, and much more! Activities during classes deal with a variety of issues that directly impact a renter’s ability to maintain a rental home and focus on giving the renters the tools to have the best rental experience(s) possible. For example, each renter will be given a card with the name of a want or need item, such as electricity, prescriptions and lottery tickets to discuss. Is the Item a want or need? Get Educated. Reduce your barriers to accessing and maintaining a stable, safe and affordable rental home with Nebraska Rentwise. Classes are available to Nebraska communities and target populations.
