SUMMARY: In this document, the Commission proposes rules for a pilot

Distribution Program (NDBEDP) established by Congress in the Twenty-
First Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010

months of enactment of the new statute that define as eligible for
relay service support those programs approved by the Commission for the
distribution of specialized customer premises equipment (specialized
CPE) to people who are deaf-blind. The goal of this NDBEDP is to make
telecommunications service, Internet access service, and advanced
communications, including interexchange services and advanced
telecommunications and information services, accessible by low income
individuals who are deaf-blind.
