Telecommunications Equipment Purchase Program

IndependenceFirst has received funding from the Public Service Commission (PSC) to bring the Telecommunications Equipment Purchase Program (TEPP) to Milwaukee, Waukesha, Ozaukee and Washington Counties.  We can assist with applications, equipment selection and installation.  Qualified participants are:
 1) Wisconsin residents
 2) People who are deaf or hard of hearing or who have a speech or mobility disability
 3) People who need special equipment to use a home telephone or adaptive cell phone equipment
TEPP is a program to help people with disabilities to buy equipment they need in order to use basic telephone services.  TEPP is paid for by the WI Universal Service Fund (USF), funded by the PSC.
