Throwin' you a Lifeline!

Is your phone bill getting out of hand? Do you currently receive assistance through the State? Kansas is currently promoting the Kansas Lifeline Service Program (KLSP)- a federal and state telephone assistance plan that provides income-eligible consumers with a reduction in the price of basic local service. You may be eligible to receive up to $17.77 off your monthly local telephone bill through the Lifeline Program. If you don't currently have telephone service, you may also be eligible for a discount on your connection charge through Link Up America.

For those living on tribal lands, there may be additional assistance

Call your local telephone company for more details on how you can cut your phone bill costs through Lifeline. The number is on your telephone bill or in the front part of the telephone directory.
