To qualify for iCanConnect Virginia you must meet ALL of the following criteria:
Note: While there are no age restrictions, all applications from minors must be co-signed by a parent or guardian.
After DBVI receives your application, we will evaluate it to determine financial eligibility, proof of residency and disability. (If your application is incomplete, we will contact you for additional information.) You will then receive a notification letter in the mail, stating whether you qualify for the program. If you do qualify, we will conduct a Braille skills assessment (either in your home or at the nearest DBVI office) and determine the best type of assistive technology for your needs.
For more information about eligibility requirements, contact DBVI at 1-800-622-2155 (voice/TTY).
