EQUIPMENT DISTRIBUTION PROGRAM
The cost of assistive communication devices can be very expensive. Since 1993, the Division of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DDHH) has operated a program to ensure that New Jersey residents with hearing loss, regardless of their economic status, have access to telecommunications and visual alerting home safety equipment needed to live independently.
Individuals unable to afford the costs of assistive communication devices may apply to the "Equipment Distribution Program" for assistance. Upon meeting eligibility requirements, individuals may receive communication devices free of cost from the DDHH.
