WisLoan

There really is financial help for Assistive Technology!chair lift

WisLoan is a state-wide alternative loan program helping Wisconsin’s residents with disabilities purchase assistive technology that assists them in living more independently and productively. 

Any Wisconsin resident with a disability who is over the age of 18 and in need of assistive technology or home modifications is eligible to apply for a loan.  Loan amounts range from $500 – $50,000 with the actual amount dependent on the items purchased and your ability to repay the loan. 

Turned down for conventional loans already?

WisLoan is made possible through a grant from Title III of the Assistive Technology Act of 1998.  FiscalWisTech-logo oversight is provided by the Wisconsin Department of Health and Family Service (DHFS) and the Office for Persons with Physical Disabilities (OPPD) with IndependenceFirst (CIL in Milwaukee) and BMO Harris Bank administering the program.  WisLoan is a loan program created by people with disabilities for people with disabilities.  Because of this, your application will still be considered even if you have bad credit or have declared bankruptcy.  The focus is on the ability to make monthly payments to repay the loan.  Reasons for bad credit are taken into consideration.
