  Breaking Down Barriers to Assistive Technology Grant from Premier Assistive Technology, Inc. We are committed to providing you the most effective and affordable assistive technology products available in the world today. We established this grant program in 2002 to help bridge the gap between education budgets and the need for educational organizations to deploy sufficient resources to serve the needs and requirements of special education programs. In this spirit, the lowest level of grant awarded is for an entire school. (Grants to individuals, single departments or "for profit" companies are not awarded). This grant will give you the right to install the suite of software on EVERY PC IN YOUR ORGANIZATION.This is truly a grant. There are no current or future obligations for your organization to pay any monies to Premier Assistive Technology to use the programs for the versions being granted to you. After the grant period has expired (all or part of a school year), there will be an optional, but very nominal maintenance fee (a fraction of the total grant value) that you can pay to entitle you to future product releases, technical support, company communications, etc.
