Lifeline Program-supported service is available for one telephone line per eligible household. A household is everyone (including children and people who are not related to you) who lives in your home and shares income and household expenses.
For more information regarding eligibility, or if you are having trouble accessing the Lifeline Pre-Screening Tool, go to the Eligibility Requirements page.
To apply for program-supported service, you must contact your telecommunications company or designated state agency directly. You cannot apply for support through USAC.
