Do you need to buy special equipment or technology due to a disability? Do you need a loan to make the purchase? Then, you may be eligible for our low-interest financing programs.
Oklahoma ABLE Tech, in partnership with the Oklahoma Assistive Technology Foundation (OkAT) and BancFirst, are proud to offer the Alternative Financing Program (AFP) and Access to Telework Fund Program (ATF) to Oklahomans with disabilities. Both of these statewide programs offer a low-interest and/or low-interest guaranty bank loan that provides individuals the opportunity to borrow money for the purchase of needed assistive technology, computers, and other adaptive equipment.
The AFP and ATF loan programs provide a way for individuals who do not qualify for a low-interest loan through BancFirst, to request a financial review by OkAT to co-sign or guarantee a loan. The interest rate charged to the borrower is a 6% fixed rate with a term of three years for unsecured loans and up to five years for secured loans. ABLE Tech has managed this very successful AFP program since the fall of 2001.
The AFP assists Oklahomans with disabilities in qualifying for low-interest loans to buy needed assistive technology that help them live, work, and learn more independently.
The ATF is for individuals who qualify to receive a low-interest loan or a guaranty loan to Oklahomans with disabilities who would like an employment outcome.
Pictured above is Mike Ward, an Alternative Financing Program participant, who used the funds to purchase a modified vehicle. Mike said, “The application process was simple and the people at BancFirst were easy to work with.”
