NOTICE:

Beginning May 11th, STAR will be resuming our device loan program in the Saint Paul office with some restrictions due to COVID-19.

Please call 651-201-2640 or 1-888-234-1267 or email star.program@state.mn.us if you would like more information or are interested in checking out a device.

At this time we will be offering No-Contact loans. All devices will be shipped directly to the borrower and we will ask that all returns are shipped to us via US Mail or another shipping provider.

Device demonstrations are usually done in person. Please let us know if you have an immediate need and we will work together to find an accessible solution through technology.
