Wyoming iCanConnect Program

iCanConnect logoWyoming’s iCanConnect program provides communications technology free of charge to low-income people of all ages who have combined vision and hearing loss. This program will distribute communications equipment to qualified individuals and provide equipment installation, training and support to help recipients make the most of this technology.

If you are a person who has combined vision and hearing loss, and you cannot afford communications technology that enables you to use a telephone, send an E-mail, access the Internet, or use other communications technology, you may be eligible for this program.

To qualify for this program you must:

  • Have combined vision and hearing loss to be considered “deaf-blind” as that term is defi ned by the Helen Keller National Center Act. A practicing professional who has direct knowledge of your vision and hearing loss, such as vision- or hearing-related professionals, educators, medical professionals or community-based service providers, must verify that you are “deaf-blind.”
  • Have an income that does not exceed 400 percent of the Federal Poverty Guidelines (FPG). Applicants who are enrolled in federal subsidy programs with income thresholds lower than 400 percent of the FPG are automatically deemed income eligible for this program. Applicants who are not enrolled in a qualifying federal low-income program must be deemed eligible by review of a recent income tax return or other means.
