Telephone Assistance Plan & Lifeline Programs

 

You may be eligible for assistance on your telephone or internet bill if you receive benefits from certain low-income assistance programs. There are two programs:


Minnesota’s Telephone Assistance Plan (TAP)
 offers a monthly credit of $7.00 on your landline telephone service plan. You may receive the TAP credit on one landline per household.

The Federal Lifeline Program offers a monthly discount of $9.25 on some landline telephone service plans. Lifeline also offers discounts on some wireless telephone service plans and some broadband internet service plans. You may receive the Lifeline discount on one service per household. The definition of a “household” is anyone living at an address including children, relatives, people not related to you, etc. who share income(s) and household expenses.
