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, plus the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Recently, the program certified for Hawaii informed the FCC that it was unable to continue participating in the NDBEDP. The FCC invited applications from other programs to become certified to distribute equipment under the NDBEDP to low income individuals who are deaf-blind in Hawaii. The deadline for applications was February 23, 2015.
On March 3, 2015, the FCC announced that it selected the Helen Keller National Center for Deaf- Blind Youth and Adults for certification to participate in the NDBEDP for the state of Hawaii, effective March 3, 2015.
