Money You Can Feel – Help Our Government Design a Tactile Currency

In collaboration with Westat Inc. and the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired in San Francisco will be hosting a Tactile Acuity Study. The Tactile Acuity Study is a federally funded project aimed at furthering the research and development of creating tactile currency in the United States. LightHouse is scheduling interviews for the last week in January at our San Francisco Headquarters.

The interview will take between 30 to 45 minutes and pay $45 for those who are selected and complete the interview. There are a limited number of spots available.

Though we can’t guarantee that the $45 paid to participants will be accessible, we hope that the group will help the Treasury implement accessible currency that makes sense for all users. If you are interested in participating, please contact Beth Berenson at
