TechOWL's services are funded by the federal Assistive Technology Act Program that supports state efforts to improve the provision of assistive technology to individuals with disabilities of all ages through comprehensive, statewide programs that are consumer-responsive. The Administration for Community Living is the federal overseeing entity. In Pennsylvania, the Assistive Technology Act Program is called Pennsylvania's Initiative on Assistive Technology or "PIAT".
PIAT makes assistive technology devices and services more available and accessible to individuals with disabilities and their families.
The amount of Pennsylvania’s annual award is based largely on our population and is based on a formula.

More of a question rather than a comment. I am the Director of the Foster Grandparent Program in Erie, PA. I have 41 volunteers that eventually would like for them to be volunteering virtually. We can get equipment through our grant, however training is an issue. Would you do training of a group of volunteers? if so, what is the limit? And…..would it be virtual or in person? And finally what would the cost be?
I have sent you an email. TechOWL provides Pennsylvanians free demonstrations and we also provide presentations and training opportunities for free once per year. I hope that we will be able to connect soon.
