Through a federal grant from the US Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Community Living (ACL), the Justice Center administers the Technology-Related Assistance for Individuals with Disabilities (TRAID) Program.
The TRAID Program’s mission is to coordinate statewide activities to increase access to and acquisition of assistive technology in the areas of education, employment, community living and information technology/telecommunications. The program serves individuals of all ages and disabilities. The Justice Center supports 12 Regional TRAID Centers (RTCs) which provide information, training, device demonstration, reuse, exchange, and loans. In addition, the Justice Center TRAID Program and RTCs provide technical assistance and advocacy on how to obtain and use assistive technology services and devices.
The Justice Center also participates in a multi-state online equipment exchange collaborative. The Assistive Technology Exchange in New England & New York was established to help facilitate equipment exchanges between individuals.
