The Lifeline program keeps phone service affordable by reducing monthly phone charges for income-eligible households.
The Link-Up program is designed to help households without telephone service get onto the telephone network and those with phone service to keep it when they move. It does this by waiving local telephone connection charges.
Apply with local telephone provider.
