The Telecommunication Access Program (TAP) provides specialized telecommunication equipment to eligible Arkansans who are deaf, hard of hearing, deaf-blind, or who have a speech, visual, mobility, or intellectual impairment. TAP strives to remove telecommunication barriers through the delivery of adaptive communication technology.
Anyone who meets the following criteria may apply:

  • Be a resident of the state of Arkansas.
  • Have personal telecommunication service. TAP does not pay for anyone's phone service.
  • Have a disability certified by a qualified professional verifying the need for specialized telecommunication equipment. A listing of qualified professionals can be found on our TAP application.
  • Meet financial income standards. If the applicant's income is $50,000 a year or below, the equipment is provided free. If the applicant has an income greater than $50,000, a shared cost option is available.
