From Able Data, with thanks to the Mid-Atlantic ADA Center

The AbleData project, funded by the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR), has released a new information sheet on funding resources for people with disabilities to obtain assistive devices. Information provided covers primary funding resources such as private and public health insurance, local school districts, vocational rehabilitation agencies, other government-sponsored resources, non-profit organizations, clinical trials and product development, crowd funding via the Internet and social media, auto manufacturer reimbursement programs, and local community, civic, and charitable organizations.
