Sept. 4, 2013 Lifeline Awareness Week

LIFELINE AWARENESS WEEK

(Roosevelt, Utah) – September 9, 2013 -

Since 1985, the Lifeline program has helped millions of eligible Americans stay connected to family, work, doctors, and emergency and community services by making telephone service more affordable. Without Lifeline, many of the neediest families and elderly members of our community would not have access to these vital resources.

About Lifeline:

Lifeline is a federal program that provides a monthly $9.25 discount on telephone service to qualified households. A household may qualify for Lifeline if its total household income is at or below 135% of the federal poverty guidelines; or if a member of the household receives help from certain public assistance programs. Lifeline is available on one telephone line per household and cannot be transferred to another person.

Lifeline Awareness Week was started in 2009 by federal and state partners. Despite efforts to increase Lifeline awareness, only half of eligible households participate in the Lifeline program. For more information regarding Lifeline service, or to see if you qualify, call STRATA Networks at 435.622.5007 or visit a store in Roosevelt or Vernal.
