About the Lifeline Program
The Federal Lifeline Assistance Program was established in the 1980s by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) during the Reagan Administration. The program originally provided low-income individuals and households discounted and free landline phone service. In 2005, the program was updated under the Bush Administration to include wireless phone services.
The goal of the Lifeline program is to ensure low-income households can afford basic telecommunication services so they can stay connected to family, friends, work, health care, job opportunities and 911 emergency services.
