Wyoming Technology Access Program

What is WYTAP?

Wyoming Assistive Technology Resources (WATR) and Wyoming Independent Living (WIL) in partnership with First Interstate Bank of Laramie, have developed a program that will offer people with disabilities an opportunity to finance assistive technology (AT) devices and services.

Loan funds must be used to purchase assistive technology devices. AT devices are defined as anything that will improve mobility, accessibility, or quality of life. AT devices may also be used to enhance recreational activities such as skiing or hunting.

WYTAP buys down the interest on the loan; thus the borrower pays very low interest. The program is the first of its kind in the state of Wyoming.
