The equipment includes:

  • Telephone equipment for deaf-blind citizens.

To qualify, applicants must provide proofs to meet as follows:

To have verification of a disability, the form must be signed by an approved medical professional. For a detailed list of professionals who are authorized to sign the form, please contact the TAP.
