The Virginia Del Sordo Fund provides $200 small grants to Pennsylvanians with disabilities to increase their ability to acquire the assistive technology (AT) devices they need. Virginia Del Sordo was a former Assistant Director of PIAT and she made the bequest enabling this fund.
The mini grant can be used as part of a funding package to get assistive technology to eligible people. It may also be used to meet deductibles or co-pays. This is a one-time only award. The maximum award is $200. Detailed information is available on the Institute on Disabilities website.

Hi my name is Paula DiVito, I have been disabled since my injury bacc in 2017. I lost my job and worker’s compensation has ended. I’m living off of child support of $350 monthly, I’m in need of hearing aids and ameri health caritas does not cover hearing aids at my age 48. It stop at age 21. Please call me at 4846617433
We are not able to provide or fund hearing aids at TechOWL but I do have an organization you may want to contact:
If you are employed, you may also want to contact the Pennsylvania Assistive Technology Foundation at PATF.us. They provide low/No interest loans for assistive technology.
I hope this helps! Kathryn
