This is where Michigan was last year. I don't belive it but, there seems to 
be NO more deaf/blind people in MI because applications into the program is 
few and far between. MI has only one trainer and we need to find those 
deaf/blind persons and overwhelm our trainer. This will permit Perkins to 
hire more trainers.

Subject: FCC INVITES APPLICATIONS FOR CERTIFICATION TO PARTICIPATE IN THE
NATIONAL DEAF-BLIND EQUIPMENT DISTRIBUTION PROGRAM IN THE STATE OF MAINE (DA
15-845)



In 2012, the FCC certified 53 programs to distribute equipment under the
National Deaf-Blind Equipment Distribution Program (NDBEDP) in each of the
50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin
Islands.



Recently, Maine Center on Deafness informed the FCC that it was unable to
continue participating in the NDBEDP for the state of Maine, effective June
30, 2015.



To ensure that Maine is able to continue participating in the NDBEDP, the
FCC invites applications from entities interested in receiving certification
for eligibility to distribute equipment under the NDBEDP to qualifying
residents in Maine.



Deadline for applications is August 5, 2015.
