Oregon Accessibility Loan Fund
The Oregon Accessibility Loan Fund (OALF) was created in partnership with Innovative Changes and CASA of Oregon to improve the lives of Oregon residents with disabilities by providing access to affordable credit, financial coaching and related services to make financial and physical independence possible. The loan can be used by applicants for a wide variety of adaptive equipment and assistive technology that improve mobility, independence and quality of life.
How it works

- Wheelchair converted vehicle
- Adaptive driving equipment
- Home accessibility modifications
- iPad or augmentative communication device
Loans range from $1,800 to $5,000, allow up to 48 months for repayment, and are reported to the major credit bureaus—helping you build your credit.
