Dear James Schmidt,

The first step is to visit www.icanconnect.org and click on Michigan as your 
state. Download the application or fill out the attached form along with a
signature of a doctor and a hearing exam and send the package to:

Cindy Caldwell
I Can Connect
201 N.Washington Sq. 2nd floor
P. o. Box 30652
Lansing, MI  48909

Then follow up with a call about two weeks later at (517) 335-7124

You may also want to join the deaf/blind division by contacting me at:
president at map-n.org

Cordially,
Marcus

Great work Marcus. Though not deaf/blind myself, please let me know if I can
assist in any matter.

> Dear NFBMI member,
>
> The NFB Deaf / Blind Division has taken on the challenge of contacting the
> deaf / blind community to determine if any may be in need of assistance in
> upgrading their communication skills with the rest of the country.
> Therefore, I am requesting you contact individuals that might qualify for
> this program. These people may be inside or outside of the NFB.
>
> The program title is "I Can Connect" and is funded by the federal
> government.
>
> The following are the points we want to achieve:
> 1. Identify more people with deaf-blind issues
> 2. Ensure all eligible people are aware of and have applied
>   for equipment under the iCanConnect program
> 3. At all times, respect privacy
> 4. Help people with deaf-blind concerns communicate with
>   each other
> 5. Encourage membership in the N.F.B.
> 6. If so indicated, encourage a deaf-blind committee in each
>   state.
> 7. Ensure interested deaf-blind citizens understand the resources
>   available to them. They may need guidance in working with the
>   agencies responsible to provide their services.
>
> Please send all contact information to me at:
> president at map-n.org
