MonTECH: Improving Lives with Technology

MonTECH provides technology, support, and services that improve the quality of life for Montanans with disabilities.

COVID-19 Update:

     Committed to doing our part so that consumers and our team members are not unnecessarily exposed to COVID-19, MonTECH has suspended in-person demonstrations and trainings until it is safe to resume.  We are honoring Governor Bullock’s latest directive and will continue to follow state guidelines concerning the pandemic.  Our team is pleased to continue to serve Montana through online assistive-technology (AT) demonstrations and support. We are also available to troubleshoot problems with distance learning or issues with AT by phone.  In other words, our physical offices will be closed, but our team will continue to work and to support you.

     You may use our web site or call to request loan items, but no items will be shipped until this crisis has passed.  Please call us at (406) 243-5751 if you have questions about our program or loan inventory. If you want 1:1 help with a device or tech issue, you can contact Michelle [(406) 243-5486,] or Marlena [(406) 657-2089,].    Thank you for your understanding as we all work together to minimize the impact of COVID-19.
