Hello Pam,
This chapter from Remarkable Conversations called "Deafblindness" will clarify you why a person who is deaf and who is blind is deaf-blind or deafblind. This is the link to the chapter:

In regards to your second question: yes, a person who is deaf-blind also qualifies for low-incidence funding.
