ILLINOIS (WCIA) — The state is getting a grant to help seniors and those with disabilities stay connected to others during COVID-19.
$1.7 million will go towards buying technology devices such as iPads, tablets and internet hotspot access. They will go to those that live alone, do not normally get in-home services and who live in rural areas. Applications such FaceTime and Zoom and Telehealth will be downloaded onto them.
State departments will identify people who will receive the items.
