Computers for low income Individuals, Non-Profits, Libraries, Schools & Faith Based Organizations

How our program works!

Computer Technology Assistance Corps (CTAC) accepts donations of recently retired computers from business and individuals. We then wipe the donor’s hard drives of any data using DoD and HIPAA compliant methods. Hardware is tested and may be upgraded with additional memory, the next stop for these systems is to fully restore, refurbish and re-license these computers, with Windows 10 Professional or Windows 10 Home and if eligible, Microsoft Office Home and Business 2010.

Computers are then provided back to the community on a 'cost recovery basis*'. A desktop computer system includes a tower with LCD flat screen monitor, Keyboard and Mouse and ranges in cost start around $75.00 and carry a one year hardware warranty. Laptops cost start at $120.00 and have a 90 day hardware warranty, on systems over $200 we provide a six month hardware warranty. Virus/malware removal not included. We do not recommend laptops for children under the age of 16.

To be eligible for these low cost computer systems an applicant must be receiving some form of state/federal assistance (like food stamps,reduced school lunch, WIC; a low income senior citizen over the age of 62 or be handicapped/disabled. If you do not receive any assistance but still need a low cost computer we can help with that as well at a slightly higher fee.

All 501(C)3 Not-For-Profit, Public or Private Schools, Faith Based community service programs and Public libraries are also eligible for computers, servers, networking equipment, overhead & Digital projectors, B&W and Color Laser printers or other hardware we might have on hand and reduced cost on-site tech-support
