CCR is a volunteer organization that assists people with disabilities (hearing, vision or physical) to purchase adaptive equipment. Eligibility is individually determined and based on the CCR Board’s decision. They do not pay for the purchase of vans (new or used) but may be able to assist with van adaptations such as hand brakes or a lift. They also do not pay for computers, software or computer adaptations. They may provide funding for hearing aids, glasses, and wheelchairs for example. They encourage collaborative funding from a variety of resources. For an application or more information contact Anne Marie Hennen, 5742 Rhode Island Ave. North Minneapolis, MN 55428 Phone: 763-550-0176. Further information on this program may be obtained on the Minnesota Star Program


Used Equipment Referral Service (UERS)

The Used Equipment Referral Service, also known as "UERS," is a free assistive technology listing service. We connect buyers and sellers of assistive technology. Anyone may use our services -- we do not screen out who may contact us or who may use our website. However, our services are intended to benefit Iowans with disabilities and their families, friends and service providers.
