On February 7, 2017, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) released a Public Notice announcing that, for 60 days, starting February 6, 2017, and ending April 7, 2017, it will accept applications for certification to participate in the permanent National Deaf-Blind Equipment Distribution Program (NDBEDP), also known as “iCanConnect.” In addition, any entity that is currently certified under the NDBEDP pilot program that does not wish to participate in the permanent NDBEDP must notify the Commission by April 7, 2017.
The FCC will certify a single entity for each state, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, as the sole entity to receive reimbursement for NDBEDP activities conducted in each of those jurisdictions after July 1, 2017.
The Public Notice contains information about the application process and filing instructions.
