On June 8, 2012, the FCC Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau announced
that it has selected the Perkins School for the Blind (Perkins) to conduct
national outreach efforts to promote the National Deaf-Blind Equipment
Distribution Program (NDBEDP). For this effort, Perkins is partnering with
the Helen Keller National Center for Deaf-Blind Youths and Adults;
FableVision, Inc.; and other national and local consumer groups, parent
groups, agencies, and associations.
The NDBEDP pilot program will run for two years, with an option for the
Commission to extend the program for another year. Perkins will conduct
national outreach efforts for the duration of the NDBEDP pilot program, as
described in its proposal. Perkins and its partners will begin these
activities on July 1, 2012. The Commission also anticipates launching the
NDBEDP pilot program on or around July 1, 2012.
