The Federal Lifeline program helps low-income Americans access affordable phone service by providing ONE discount on ONE monthly basic telephone service (either wireline or wireless) for qualified households. A "household" is defined, for purposes of the Lifeline program, as any individual or group of individuals who live together at the same address and share income and expenses. Those who qualify receive discounts for the basic local service of their bill. Taxes, fees, long distance, phones and phone accessories are not discounted. Discounts will be applied to your Nemont bill once all the required forms have been received.
