The Telephone Assistance Program (Lifeline):

Your existing telephone company must also participate in the LITAP program and if you currently are active in one or more of the following state programs:
If you are not on one of the above programs you will not qualify for the telephone discount. Participation in a Federal program alone, such as Social Security, does not make you eligible for Lifeline. Please ask your telecommunications provider if they participate in the telephone discount program before you contact the number below. Not all telecommunications providers will offer the telephone discount.If you have a cell phone for your primary phone service, check with your provider to see if they participate in the telephone assistance program.
You may apply by completing the LITAP Application then faxing it to 303-861-0275, or call toll-free to apply at: 1-800-782-0721.
