Population(s) Served

Non-federal (Bellows): Assistive technology often plays a vital role in the lives of people with disabilities. Assistive technology is any item, piece of equipment, or product that is used to increase, maintain, or improve the functional capabilities of individuals with disabilities. We offer financial assistance through our non-federal grant program, The Bellows Grant, which helps pay for assistive technology equipment to individuals with disabilities that cannot afford to purchase this live changing equipment or special devices. Use of this program is available only through UCP affiliates.

Population(s) Served

UCP educates the affiliate network through the Life Without Limits and Network News e-newsletter and seminars, such as the Professional Learning Series and newly developed affiliate portal. At the annual meeting, now open to the public, valuable information is shared on cerebral palsy and disability-related issues, as well as philanthropy and leadership topics. UCP also educates the general public through its newly revamped and accessible website, which provides information for parents, caregivers, and people with disabilities around the globe in several languages including a text-to-speech feature. UCP will also provide Information Referral (I&R) services through its partnership with an affiliate where individuals can obtain information on how to contact their local, state, and federal resources by either calling a toll-free number or submit an inquiry via the UCP website. Bi-lingual staff members will be available to answer inquiries in both English and Spanish.
