On March 24, 2009, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) announced that it will open up converter box coupon applications to those households that have expired or misplaced coupons.
Affected Seattle families that were originally left to shoulder the cost of a digital converter box alone can now reapply for $40 coupons to offset the cost of the box. However, some affected families who live in single room occupancies or group housing will need donated coupons, since their addresses may not be recognized by NTIA. To help needy families, you can donate unused, unneeded coupons to:
Youngstown Cultural Arts Center and Youth Media Institute
4408 Delridge Way SW
Seattle, WA 98106
For more information about local organizations that are providing technical assistance and information about the DTV transition, call Tania Mar"a Rosario at (206) 351-2070 0r email: [email protected].
