The American Printing House for the Blind (APH) provides materials for individuals who are blind or visually impaired (BVI). The Federal Quota Program provides funds for participating states and agencies to purchase educational materials from APH.
Congress appropriates the funds through the Act to Promote the Education of the Blind. The funds are managed by APH and its Ex Officio Trustees.
MDE-LIO Supervisor Collette Bauman serves as the Ex Officio Trustee for Michigan.
