Vendors & Providers

The support for Tennessee’s Early Intervention System (TEIS) by vendors continues to be an integral part of our success. TEIS is committed to a family-centered system of early intervention services for eligible infants and toddlers and their families. Additionally, TEIS strives to place eligible infants and toddlers in natural environments for their intervention needs as mandated by CFR Section 303.12 (Natural environment = home and community settings in which children without disabilities may participate.)

General Requirements for Vendors

Vendor/Provider Application

If you are interested in being considered as a vendor with the State of Tennessee, please contact Barbara Bridges with TEIS Fiscal Services team (FST) at Barbara.Bridges@tn.gov for the most current application. Each application received will be reviewed by a committee and the TEIS district office in your agency’s area to determine the acceptance of new vendors. For information about providing services, please contact the local district office that serves the county in which your business resides.

All applications will be considered regardless of service delivery settings, however TEIS gives preference to agencies willing to provide services in the child’s natural environment.
