Additional Support for Tribal Lands

If you live on Tribal lands, you can receive a discount of up to $34.25 per month, and up to a $100 reduction for first-time connection charges.

Enhanced Monthly Support

You can receive up to $25 per month in addition to the standard Lifeline benefit of up to $9.25 if you live on federally-recognized Tribal lands.

Link Up

Link Up can reimburse the full cost of initiating service with certain phone companies at your primary residence, up to $100. If the cost of initiating service is more than $100, the company will provide a no-interest payment plan for up to $200 for up to one year.

If you reside on federally-recognized Tribal lands, you are eligible for Link Up. Link Up is a one-time benefit per address; you can request Link Up each time you change your primary residential address.
