Easterseals and the Comcast Foundation have established “The Comcast Assistive Technology Fund at Easterseals” to support innovative assistive technology services through a competitive grant process with Easterseals affiliates in Comcast Cable markets.
Through this initiative, Easterseals and Comcast expands successful models of assistive technology services to guide consumers with disabilities on assessment, training, and on-going support that will meet their assistive technology needs throughout their lifespan.
