Utah State Instructional Materials Access Center Providing A Bright Future

APH Federal Quota Program

American Printing House for the Blind (APH) is a non-profit organization that has been designated by the US Congress as the official supplier of educational materials to all students in the U.S. who meet the definition of blindness and are working below a college level. Materials and funds are distributed through the Federal Quota Program. Each state has an "Ex Officio Trustee of the APH" (EOT) for each quota account. The role of the EOT is to administer the Federal Quota Program and determine how these funds are used to purchase materials for eligible students under his or her jurisdiction. 

Consistent with Utah law and Board administrative rule, products and materials purchased with APH funds are housed and maintained by the Utah Schools for the Deaf and Blind (USDB). See the APH Program Guidelines for 2019-20 here.
