The Maryland Accessible Telecommunications (MAT) Program

Get the telecommunications equipment needed to independently make or receive phone calls. The Maryland Accessible Telecommunications (MAT) program, a service of Maryland Relay, offers a wide variety of solutions and tools—from amplified phones to Braille TTY's—to support day-to-day communications.

How the Program Works:

  1. Apply for free equipment
    Equipment is free to qualified applicants. If you apply and do not qualify, but wish to purchase equipment, you may still receive a free evaluation (see next step). Learn more about the application criteria and process.
  2. Schedule a free personalized evaluation
    After your application is reviewed, you will be contacted to schedule a free evaluation at one of our MAT evaluation centers statewide. See a list of evaluation centers and locations.
  3. Get a solution that is right for you
    During your evaluation, you will work one-on-one with a MAT program specialist to try out different equipment options and identify the one that works for you. See a sampling of solutions.
  4. Start using your NEW equipment!
    Equipment is shipped to you within 4-6 weeks. Each device comes with personalized instructions for setup and use. You may also contact your MAT evaluator for additional training.

Equipment For Every Need

The MAT program has a solution for virtually anyone who has difficulty using a standard telephone—we can even custom-create a solution for you! Check out our Frequently Asked Questions page to learn more.
