Government Assistance Programs

What Is Lifeline?

The Lifeline program was established in 1985 by the Federal Communications Commission and was created to help eligible low-income consumers in every state, territory, commonwealth, and on Tribal lands have access to telecommunication services.

Who Can Qualify?

Lifeline and ACP are government benefit programs providing free cell phone service for eligible customers. You may qualify for FREE phone service if you receive assistance from Medicaid/Medi-Cal, SNAP/CalFresh or other government programs, or if you are considered low income.

Affordable Connectivity Program

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is the Federal Communications Commission’s program which was launched on December 31, 2021, replacing the Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) program, which brings connectivity to low-income Americans. This is a supplemental plan that is separate from the US Government’s Lifeline Program

The ACP is winding down and no longer accepts new applications and enrollments after February 7, 2024. Explore the potential impact on your service and application below
