Legislative/Policy & Funding
Missouri Assistive Technology (MoAT) monitors and works to improve both federal and state legislation and policies that are supportive of assistive technology in areas such as Medicaid, special education, vocational rehabilitation, health insurance, etc. MoAT also provides information to individuals attempting to secure funding and resources for assistive technology.
Current legislative and policy information is provided to keep consumers and providers informed of important issues. A disability listserv is operated to provide timely information on disability related legislation and policy. Postings provide a brief overview of state legislation in the General Assembly, implications for persons with disabilities, and up-to-date information on bill status in the legislative process. Updates are also provided on new laws as they go into effect and other timely policy issues.
