RFE Announcement

Three of the four County Boards representing the Eastern Region Alliance seek proposals to expand adaptive equipment and/or assistive technology resources in the Greater St. Louis Region (St. Charles County, St. Louis County, and City of St. Louis) with the priority being expansion of assistive/enabling technology. Agencies will be experienced in the administration of adaptive equipment and/or assistive/enabling technology services and will increase the number served and support individuals with gaining independence through traditional and innovative technologies. Interested agencies must support the missions of each County Board and adhere to the Alliance’s vision, funding framework, and requirements for service provision as outlined in the Partner Funding Manual.

The County Boards define adaptive equipment as: services support individuals and families with accessing equipment, technology and/or home modifications that increases an individual’s ability to safely and independently navigate home and community settings. Adaptive Equipment includes equipment, technology, environmental adaptations and/or maintenance and repairs that improve an individual’s experience in their home, community, daily life and work.

Historically, adaptive equipment and/or assistive/enabling technology services are provided to 50+ eligible individuals in each county, annually
