The Commission is seeking approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for a three-year extension of this information collection to allow communications equipment and related services to continue to be provided to low-income individuals who are deaf-blind. The Twenty-First Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010 (CVAA) requires the Commission to take various measures to ensure that individuals with disabilities have access to emerging communications technologies in the 21st century. Section 105 of the CVAA adds section 719 to the Communications Act of 1934, as amended (the Act). Section 719 of the Act requires the Commission to establish rules that define as eligible for up to $10,000,000 of support annually from the Interstate Telecommunications Relay Service Fund (TRS Fund) those programs that are approved by the Commission for the distribution of specialized customer premises equipment designed to make telecommunications service, Internet access service, and advanced communications, including interexchange services and advanced telecommunications and information services, accessible by low-income individuals who are deaf-blind.
