Assistive Technology Act

In 1998, the Assistive Technology Act was passed. This act replaced the Technology-Related Assistance for Individuals with Disabilities Act of 1988, which was also known as the Tech Act. Then, in 2004, Congress amended the Assistive Technology Act. The 2004 amendment required programs to provide state-level activities such as assistive technology demonstrations, loans, and reutilization services.
