NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Regulatory Authority will participate in a national pilot program distributing communication devices to low income deaf-blind citizens.

The agency has been awarded an annual grant of $189,000 from the Federal Communications Commission to implement the project. TRA chairman Kenneth Hill said the program enhances a similar one already under way in the state.

The TRA sets rates and service standards for privately owned utilities in Tennessee.
