Telephone Assistance Programs (Lifeline)

Every person in America should have access to quality affordable telecommunications service. This principle of “Universal Service” has been the goal of the telecommunications industry for decades. DRN offers home telephone assistance programs adopted by the North Dakota Public Service Commission. This program, referred to as Lifeline, helps eligible people pay a portion of their telephone costs.

Lifeline applies only to primary local telephone service or broadband in your home. It can save you at least $9.25 on your monthly phone bill.
