Lifeline: What Is It and Who Does It Help?

Lifeline is a federal program that provides low-income families $9.25 every month to help reduce the cost of phone service. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is considering allowing families to use this subsidy to pay for internet access at home so that students are better equipped to do well in school.
