11.1. Lifeline Program
Lifeline Program is a federal program which provides support to telecommunications companies that in turn offer discounts to millions of eligible consumers.
Approximately 2,000 telecommunications companies provide these discounts. Consumers can apply for these discounts through their telecommunications company.
Eligible households can receive up to $9.25 per month in discounts. Additional state support may be available. Approximately 2,000 telephone companies are eligible to provide these discounts. A household applies for the discounts through their telecommunications company. These companies are then reimbursed through the Lifeline Program.
