Telecommunication Equipment for Wisconsin Residents with Disabilities

The Telecommunications Equipment Purchase Program (TEPP) helps people with disabilities purchase equipment necessary for access to essential, basic telephone service.

In 1993, the Wisconsin legislature created the Universal Service Fund to assure that all Wisconsin residents can make use of telecommunication services affordably and equally. The program, which is supported by funds from all Wisconsin telephone service providers, includes TEPP and other consumer opportunities.

For complete TEPP information and application materials, contact the Public Service Commission TEPP website (exit DHS).
