Telecommunications Equipment Assistance Program


The NH – TEAP provides specialized telephone land line equipment for people who have difficulty using a standard phone due to a disability such as vision loss, hearing loss or challenges to speech or mobility. This program helps New Hampshire residents with disabilities by providing financial and hands-on assistance, when needed, so they can acquire and use telephones especially to access emergency services.
