What is TAP?



The Kansas Telecommunications Access Program (TAP) is an equipment distribution program. The purpose of the program is to provide specialized telephones and other telecommunications devices to Kansans with disabilities who can’t use traditional home telephones. Based on a state law, the program receives funds through the Kansas Universal Service Fund (KUSF) and is regulated by the Kansas Corporation Commission (KCC).


Assistive Technology for Kansans (ATK) began to manage Kansas TAP in May 2014. The management office is located in Parsons.  Each of the regional AT Access Sites and the affiliate office assist with applications and provide demonstrations, click on this link to see the location nearest you: https://atk.ku.edu/ks-tap .


Since May 2014, Pioneer Communications is no longer a vendor for the Kansas TAP.  There is no longer need for a voucher.  If you qualify for specialized telephone equipment, it will be sent directly to your home.  To apply for assistance, download an application at this website: https://atk.ku.edu/applications.  The completed form may be mailed, faxed or emailed to the ATK – TAP office.
