Empowering Mississippians with Disabilities

Mississippi's Project START (Success Through Assistive Rehabilitative Technology) is the federally funded Assistive Technology Act Program for the State of Mississippi and operates under the Department of Health and Human Services’ Administration of Community Living.  The Mississippi Department of Rehabilitation Services is the lead agency for our program.

Project START provided access to and the acquisition of Assistive Technology to Mississippians of all ages and all disabilities.  Through our Device Loan, Device Reutilization and Computer Refurbishment Program Project START increases access to appropriate assistive technology devices.  Our services allow Mississippians with disabilities, an opportunity to live, learn, work and play independently in the community of their choice.

START’s mission statement is: Empowering Mississippians with disabilities through education, awareness and access to Assistive Technology.
