Telephone Assistance Plan
Telephone Discounts Can Help You Stay In Touch
Minnesota's Telephone Assistance Plan (TAP) and the federal LIFELINE Program help make telephone service affordable to low-income consumers.
TAP offers a $10.00 per month discount on home landline telephone service.
The federal Lifeline Program offers a monthly discount of $5.25 on landline telephone service or $9.25 on a wireless telephone service or $9.25 on a broadband internet service account.
Lifeline recipients will be automatically enrolled in the TAP program.
Lifeline credits may be used to reduce the price of broadband internet service in addition to reducing the price of landline service.
