ATLA and the UAF Cooperative Extension Office have partnered on this USDA funded program. AgrAbility helps Alaskans who cultivate, operate or manage a farm for profit and experience a barrier to doing so independently. These farms include growing crops and horticulture, raising livestock, and even harvesting seafood.
ALS Evergreen Chapter
ATLA hosts a loan library of communication and AT daily living devices set aside for Alaskans that experience ALS.
We have partnered with the Statewide Independent Living Council (SILC) for the Home Accessibility and Enabling Technology Pilot Project which helps Medicaid Waiver recipients receive an evaluation, equipment, and installation of smart assistive technology so they can be in control of their environment.
Home Modifications for Aging in Place
We also partnered with Southeast Alaska Independent Living (SAIL) for the Home Modifications for Aging in Place, aka HomeMAP, program which helps Alaskans navigate funding and options for making their homes safe and accessible. For Mat-Su and Anchorage residents, our staff creates a customized report outlining the modifications required for independence, safety, and aging in place.
