Nomination Deadline Extended for FCC Chair’s Awards for Advancement in Accessibility

Word from the FCC. Let’s try to flood the market with Minnesota folks and projects!

Last Friday, the FCC announced the extension of the nomination deadline for the 2021 FCC Chair’s Awards for Advancement in Accessibility (AAA).  Nominations are now due on Friday, October 1, 2021. 

The AAA highlights innovative practices, technologies, policies, and research that address longstanding or novel accessibility gaps in communications technologies. This year’s awards will recognize particularly notable or creative ways that technical solutions have been developed or deployed to provide accessibility to people with disabilities during the COVID-19 environment.  Additional information about the AAA and nomination procedures can be found at the original FCC Chair’s AAA Public Notice.   

For more information, please contact Deandrea Wilson (202-418-0703), Chantal Virgile (202-418-0056) or call the ASL Consumer Support Line at 1-844-432-2275 via videophone. Inquiries and nominations may also be sent to FCCAAA@fcc.gov.
