Project CARAT Logo

Project CARAT (Coordinating & Assisting the Reuse of Assistive Technology) supports the reuse of assistive technology that is no longer needed or used by its original owner and is acquired by a new owner at no cost.

Our inventory of equipment is dependent on what has been donated to us and can change. To search for items we currently have available, visit the KY AT Locator website or contact the CARAT site nearest you.

Please use the item request form below to let us know what items you are needing. If you have an item you would like to donate, please use the item donation form below.

The goal of Project CARAT is to make Assistive Technology and Durable Medical Equipment more accessible to those who need it in underserved areas of Kentucky. In order to make this happen, Project CARAT is partnering with agencies across the state. We take donated equipment, clean it, make repairs if we need to, and then redistribute it to people who need it. If you live in Kentucky and have a need for equipment, or have equipment you’d like to donate, please let us know.

To date, project CARAT has provided 12,349 assistive technology/durable medical equipment items valued at over $3,063,955 (estimated MRSP) to 3,276 individuals with disabilities
