Telephone - Lifeline & Link-Up Programs

For qualifying low-income members.
Pay only $1/month for local telephone service.

Pays for initial telephone connections.

Pays 50% of basic monthly service, as long as subscriber pays $1/month.

To qualify, you must:

  1. Reside on Tribal Lands [ *The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Order 00-208 increased funds available for LIfeline and Link Up services to qualifying low-income individuals living on Tribal Lands (i.e. on a reservation or near a reservation). It is our understanding that the FCC adopted the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA’s) regulations to define the geographic scope of these programs. The BIA considers all of Alaska to be within the definition of “reservation” and, as a result, the FCC order applies to all financially eligible individuals within the state.]

  2. Receive assistance from one of the following programs: Medicaid, Food Stamps, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Federal Public Housing Assistance, Bureau of Indian Affairs General Assistance, Tribally-Administered Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, Head Start Programs (only those meeting its qualifying income standards), National School Lunch Program.
