Part B – Communication Access
“Part-B” is a federally funded program, granted to Northeast Deaf and Hard of Hearing
Services, Inc. through the State of New Hampshire Department of Education
Independent Living Part B (awarded through NH Vocational Rehabilitation) on an annual
basis. This program provides funding to cover the cost of communication access for social events where the cost of interpretation services would fall to an individual/the Deaf/Hard of Hearing Community Member. Part B can be used to pay for interpreters/CART for private family events, funeral services, weddings, family reunions, family parties, and other social events.
For questions regarding eligibility and details about Part B, please see our Part B FAQ section below.
