Get funding or a grant to pay for a need

Iowa Compass has information about funding to meet the needs of people with disabilities, their family members, and care providers.  Most funding information focuses on paying for assistive technology equipment. Search using specific keywords for what you are trying to get paid for such as wheelchair , iPads ,  hearing aids , ramps , for examples.   Some funding resources can also be used for anything but are only available to people with specific health conditions like Autism, AIDS/HIV or Multiple Sclerosis.  We recommend typing in your zip code on the search page and selecting the Financial Assistance category.  From that category, you can scroll through a variety of different items and services for which funding may be available.  If the funding is needed for an assistive technology device, loan closets may also be an option to borrow the device temporarily.
