STAP (Specialized Telecommunication Assistance Program) is a program to help differently-abled individuals access the phone.

DARS issues STAP vouchers based on the assistance an individual needs to access the phone.

  1. Applications are processed by HHSC to determine if the individual is eligible.
  2. HHSC mails a Voucher to the individual, authorizing a specific Voucher Type.
  3. The Voucher is exchanged by an authorized STAP vendor.
  4. The vendor is reimbursed for the funds.
