The Deaf and Disabled Telecommunications Program (DDTP) is a public program mandated by the California State legislature and administered by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC).
The CPUC’s Communications Division and the DDTP’s Administrative Contractor (The California Communications Access Foundation) work closely together on the DDTP program. The DDTP includes the California Relay Service (CRS), including Speech-to-Speech, and the California Telephone Access Program (CTAP), which provides assistive telecommunications equipment. The purpose of these programs is to provide access to basic telephone service for Californians who have difficulty using a standard telephone. For more information, please visit: www.ddtp.org.
The CPUC is advised by the Telecommunications Access for the Deaf and Disabled Administrative Committee (TADDAC) and the Equipment Program Advisory Committee (EPAC). A majority of the members of these committees represent consumers of the DDTP. Committee members hold consumer seats representing different constituencies from the community and provide input to the CPUC regarding the needs of those constituents.
