Equipment Distribution Program

The New Jersey Department of Human Services, Division of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DDHH) operates an Equipment Distribution Program (EDP) to ensure that New Jersey residents with hearing loss have access to the telecommunications and visual alerting home safety equipment necessary for independent living. 
Individuals who are unable to afford the costs of a CapTel phone as one of the assistive communication devices may apply to the EDP for assistance. Upon meeting eligibility requirements, individuals may receive a CapTel phone free of cost from the NJ DDHH.
