The Telecommunications Equipment Purchase Program (TEPP) is to help people with disabilities buy specialized equipment they need in order to use basic telephone services. TEPP is one of several different programs paid for by the Wisconsin Universal Service Fund (USF) established by the Public Service Commission. Money collected from Wisconsin telephone service providers goes into the USF.
To apply for a TEPP voucher on-line, use the revised on-line application. If you are unable to use the on-line application, you can print the application form provided in pdf format and mail to the address on the form.
It generally takes 3 to 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 on-line application instead of mailing or faxing applications for a quicker turn around time for voucher processing.
