Welcome to Kansas Telecommunications Access Program

Are you, or someone you know frustrated trying to use the telephone? Is it difficult to
hear or understand the conversation? Do others have a hard time hearing you, or ask
you to repeat yourself often? Is it challenging to dial a phone with small buttons or hard
to read displays? Perhaps you don’t always hear the telephone ring or can’t get to the
telephone in time before the caller hangs up.

The Kansas Telecommunications Access Program (TAP) can provide you with a telephone
specifically designed to help you with any of these difficulties.

TAP provides these specialized telephones FREE to those that qualify. Kansas residents with existing telephone service and income below $55,000 per year will qualify if they also have trouble hearing, seeing, speaking, remembering, walking, or holding a telephone.
