Telecommunications Equipment Purchase Program

Please note: Some of the links on this page will be updated on Wednesday, September 9, 2020. Some bookmarks may need to be updated. If you experience any problems please email Billy Mauldin.  


The Telecommunications Equipment Purchase Program (TEPP) is to help people with disabilities buy specialized equipment they need in order to use basic telephone services. To apply for a TEPP voucher online, use our revised online application below. If you are unable to use the online application, you can print the application form provided in pdf format and mail to the address on the form.

Contact the TEPP Administrator at TEPP@Solixinc.com if you have problems with the online application. ​

How to apply for a TEPP voucher:


Online TEPP Application/Application Status (Use this link to apply or to check your status)

Voucher Application

It generally takes 3-4 weeks to receive your voucher. It will take longer to receive your voucher if you apply for TAP to cover the copay. Applications are processed in the order in which they are received and vouchers are issued on a first-come, first-served basis. Use the online application instead of mailing or faxing applications for a quicker turn around time for voucher processing.

Voucher Status

When you open the "Online TEPP Application/Application Status" (above), you can also check when you last used a TEPP voucher. Click on "Application Status" and fill in the requested information to find out when you last completed a TEPP voucher or the status of your current application. You can apply for another voucher 35 months from the voucher completed date.
