About the Practice
KEEPING MARYLANDERS CONNECTED BY PHONE
Telecommunications Access of Maryland (TAM) is a State agency that provides equipment and services for Marylanders who have difficulty using a telephone. We provide a vast array of solutions to meet the diverse needs of our state, including:
Calling Options from Maryland Relay
If you, or a loved one, is Deaf, hard of hearing, late-deafened, DeafBlind, or has cognitive, mobility or speech difficulty, Maryland Relay offers many free calling options that enable you to make and receive calls. Learn more about our Relay services.
Telecommunications Equipment Provided by the State
The Maryland Accessible Telecommunications (MAT) program provides assistive telecommunications equipment to qualified Marylanders. Free training may also be available. Learn more about the MAT program and apply for your free evaluation.
TAM staff members are active in educating the community about Relay services and assistive equipment through presentations, school programs, community events, business partnerships, and more. Learn more about our outreach efforts.
TAM became a part of the Maryland Department of Disabilities in July 2020 and is guided by the Governor’s Advisory Board of Telecommunications Relay. The services Maryland Relay provides are funded by the Universal Service Trust Fund (USTF).
