Program Overview and Resources
The Lifeline Program is one of the four federal benefit programs administered by the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC). Lifeline helps households obtain affordable connectivity services by providing a discount to low-income consumers.
Lifeline subscribers may receive up to $9.25 off their monthly phone or internet bill and Lifeline subscribers that live on federally recognized tribal lands may receive up to $34.25 off their monthly bill. Consumers qualify for Lifeline through participation in government programs (such as SNAP or Tribal TANF) or if their income is at or below 135% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines.
