Computer Grant Applications Available

7/1/2009

Applications will be accepted from July 1 to October 1 for the MSF’s Computer Grant Program. 
 
There is a world of support and information about MS to be found using a computer, but many people cannot access it.  Because a technology gap still exists for people with disabilities, this grant program provides refurbished desktop computers and for people who have MS and have limited or fixed incomes.
 
To meet approval for this grant, the applicant’s MS diagnosis must be verified.  A brief essay from the applicant explaining how a computer will enhance their quality of life is also required. 
 
Internet access and technical support will be the responsibility of the grant recipient.  Those who need training will be referred to computer literacy classes in their area.
 
Refurbished computers come from schools, businesses and office buildings.  The program offers only desktop computers of various models. If your computer is broken, the MSF may supply a new tower for use with your existing monitor and accessories.
    
Applications for this grant are available online (click Programs and Activities, then Computer Grant Program), in MSFocus, or by calling 888-673-6287.
