Community Outreach

 In our mission to provide equal access to the phone system for all Montanans, the Montana Telecommunications Access Program (MTAP) and Montana Relay work to educate communities across our state about Relay calling options, assistive telecommunications equipment, and other communication-enhancing solutions.

Free Information Sessions

Contact us to request a FREE presentation for your school, group, or organization to learn more about MTAP and Montana Relay. Presentation topics can be custom-tailored to your unique audience, but can include:

  • Montana Relay’s diverse calling solutions and how to identify the most appropriate service for you or your loved one
  • Placing and receiving calls through Montana Relay
  • Assistive telecommunications equipment options for people who are unable to use a standard telephone
  • How to apply and qualify for no-cost assistive telecommunications equipment through MTAP
  • Captioned Telephone (CapTel®) for seniors—the benefits, how it works, and how to get a CapTel phone in your home or office

Community Events

 You can find MTAP and Montana Relay exhibiting at health fairs, festivals, conferences, and other events across the state all year long. During these events, stop by our table to speak to our outreach coordinators and learn how we can serve you. Follow us on Facebook to see when we’ll be at an event near you.
