Last fall, Virginia Relay and the Virginia Department for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing introduced iCanConnect, a new program established by the Federal Communications Commission to provide a wide range of communications tools – including screen enlargement software, screen readers and Braille displays – at no cost to qualified applicants who have combined hearing and vision loss.

A new website, www.iCanConnectVirginia.org, is now live for anyone who would like more information about this program. The site features eligibility information, a list of the available equipment, frequently asked questions, and contact information for interested applicants.

To qualify for iCanConnect, applicants must be verified as deaf-blind by a practicing vision- or hearing-related professional and be enrolled in a federal low-income program or have an income that does not exceed 400 percent of the Federal Poverty Guidelines.

To learn more or to apply, visit www.iCanConnectVirginia.org, call 1-800-552-7917 (v/tty) or email frontdsk@vddhh.virginia.gov.
