WV Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing
Telephonic Communication Device Loan Program
WVCDHH is dedicated to ensuring that deaf and hard of hearing West Virginia residents have equal access to communication. Through a federal program, individuals that utilize American Sign Language can apply for a video phone free of charge through various companies. However, WVCDHH recognizes that a video phone does not meet the needs of all deaf and hard of hearing individuals, and offers alternative equipment through a loan program to meet those needs.
