In 2012, the FCC certified 53 programs to distribute equipment under the National Deaf-Blind Equipment Distribution Program (NDBEDP) in each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Recently, Indiana State University informed the FCC that it was unable to continue participating in the NDBEDP, effective June 30, 2014.
In addition, the Minnesota Department of Human Services Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services Division informed the FCC that it will be unable to continue participating in the NDBEDP, effective July 1, 2014.
To ensure that Indiana and Minnesota are able to continue participating in the NDBEDP, the FCC invites applications from entities interested in receiving certification to distribute equipment under the NDBEDP to qualifying residents in Indiana and Minnesota.
Deadline for applications is June 19, 2014. Links to the Public Notice:
