(September 26, 2013) NCD Tactile Currency Forum
Forum: "Introduction of Tactile Currency in America"
In support of efforts to convene stakeholders to create awareness of, educate, and provide relevant input for recommendations and action, the National Council on Disability (NCD) is privileged to host a forum in collaboration with the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, the Federal Reserve Board, and the U.S. Secret Service on the development and distribution of tactile currency in the United States. Since 2008, the Department of the Treasury has been working to provide meaningful access to U.S. paper currency for persons with print disabilities. This forum will include remarks regarding the design, production and distribution of tactile currency, and a panel of representatives from each agency will engage invited guests in dialogue through questions and comments.
