More than 35,000 currency readers have been distributed to the vision impaired in the past year by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing and BEP would like that number to grow.
In observance of Low Vision Awareness Month and in partnership with the Library of Congress’ National Library Services for the Blind and Physically Handicapped, applications for a free reader are being accepted.
Individuals should complete the application located on BEP’s website at http://www.bep.gov/uscurrencyreaderform.html, or call (844) 815-9388, toll free to request that an application be mailed.
