Assistive Technology (TRAID) Program
Through a federal grant from the US Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Community Living (ACL), the Justice Center administers the Technology-Related Assistance for Individuals with Disabilities (TRAID) Program. The TRAID Program’s mission is to coordinate statewide activities to increase access to and acquisition of assistive technology in the areas of education, employment, community living and information technology/telecommunications.
The Justice Center supports 12 Regional TRAID Centers (RTCs) which provide information, training, device demonstration, reuse, exchange, and loans. In addition it provides technical assistance and advocacy on how to obtain and use assistive technology services and devices. A list of the centers located statewide can be found at https://www.justicecenter.ny.gov/services-supports/assistive-technology-traid/locations
The Justice Center also participates in a multi-state online equipment exchange collaborative. Items can be found at lower than market price or for no cost on its website at www.getATstuff.com
