American Printing House for the Blind (APH) Materials
What are APH Quota Funds?
Federal quota funds are an annual appropriation shared proportionally among all public institutions for students who are blind or visually impaired in the United States. All states conduct an annual registration of students who are visually impaired on the first Monday in January each year to determine their share of these funds. Each state's share of these funds is held in escrow at the American Printing House for the Blind (APH) and, as orders for materials are processed, their cost is drawn against that account.
TSBVI manages a statewide system of ordering, distributing, and repairing instructional materials purchased from APH with federal quota funds. Specialized equipment and instructional materials may be requested by a local school district for the eligible visually impaired students it serves.
