Lifeline and the Affordable Connectivity Program
Lifeline and the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) are two federally funded government programs.
“Since 1985, the Lifeline program has provided a discount on phone service for qualifying low-income consumers to ensure that all Americans have the opportunities and security that phone service brings, including being able to connect to jobs, family and emergency services.” (FCC)
ACP on the other hand ensures that all households can afford the broadband (internet) they need to connect to work, school, healthcare, and much more.
There are currently over 10 million families enrolled in the ACP program.
Together, Lifeline and ACP make up the two major government-funded programs that provide free or discounted phone service.
How can I Qualify for Free Cell Phone Service?
To qualify for the Lifeline program, you must participate in one of the following programs:
- Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)
- Veterans Pension or Survivors Pension Benefit
- Section 8
- Social Security Income
- Tribal Programs
- Food Distribution on Indian Reservations Program
- Tribal Head Start
- Tribal TANF (TTANF)
Or you must have a household income that is at or below 135% of the federal poverty guidelines.
If you don’t qualify for Lifeline through any of the above programs you still may possibly qualify for the Affordable Connectivity Program through WIC, Pell Grant, National School Free Lunch Program (NSLP), or you can have a household income that is at or below 200% of the federal poverty guidelines which allows more families to qualify through income alone.
Check the chart below to see whether your income level qualifies you for ACP.
To take advantage of these 2 programs you must sign up through an ACP or Lifeline wireless provider!
