Why Is National Lifeline Awareness Important?

The FCC threatens the future of Lifeline by proposing changes that impede resellers ability to provide telecommunication services, and ultimately harm the participants who rely on this program. The Lifeline program helps participants connect to job opportunities, health care, education, and emergency services using 21st century technology.

In addition to spreading Lifeline awareness through social sharing, you can also stay up to date by becoming a member (FREE) or contribute to the fight to save Lifeline.
