Telecommunication Devices Access Program (TDAP)

​The Telecommunication Devices Access Program (TDAP) is a program that loans specialized communications equipment at no cost and with no income guidelines to eligible Oregon residents who have a disability in:

  • Hearing,
  • Vision,
  • Speech,
  • Mobility, or
  • Cognition.

Specialized communications equipment are devices designed to support the needs of a person with a particular disability.  Examples include corded or cordless amplified phones, captioned phones, big button phones, speakerphones, electrolarynxes, cell phones, tablets, speech generating devices, and more.
 
State law limits one device per applicant, although two devices may be provided if there is more than one eligible person in a given household.

​You must be an Oregon resident, at least four (4) years of age, and have one of the following professionals certify your disability on the application that is within their scope to participate in the program.  For example, a speech language pathologist is qualified to certify a speech disability.​

  • Licensed physician

  • Physician assistant
  • Nurse practitioner
  • Vocational rehabilitation counselor
  • Audiologist
  • Hearing aid specialist
  • Speech-language pathologist
  • Optometrist
