If applicable, describe how the State will support with State funds any State-level activities described in section 4(e)(2).
The State of Minnesota does not support any of STAR's State-level activities with a direct appropriation of state dollars. Other state-funded agencies, such as State Services for the Blind and the Department of Human Services offer demonstration and telephone equipment distribution programs.
10.2 State Support for State Leadership Activities
If applicable, describe how the State will support with State funds any State Leadership activities described in section 4(e)(3), if applicable.
STAR is a member of the Minnesota Department of Education AT Leadership Team that helps plan such activities as Charting the Cs (the premier AT/Education conference in Minnesota) and Up to the MN*AT (MDE's AT summer institute). STAR's partnership with the Department of Education helps assure that the AT Act is represented in these activities.
