Lifeline/Linkup - Available Through NDTC

To assist qualified customers in obtaining and maintaining local telephone service, discount assistance programs are available through NDTC.

Lifeline, a government program, provides eligible customers with a monthly discount on charges for their primary home phone line. NDTC telephone service is a Lifeline supported service.

Link-Up provides qualified subscribers of Tribal lands with a discount off of the one-time costs associated with initiating phone service at their principal place of residence.

An individual is eligible if he or she participates in one of the following programs: Medicaid, Food Stamps, Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Federal Public Housing Assistance, National School Lunch (NSL) Programs' Free Lunch Program, or if income is at or below 135% of the federal poverty guidelines.

Residents of Tribal lands qualify if they participate in any of the above programs or one of the following: Bureau of Indean Affairs (BIA) general assistance, Head Start (those meeting its income-qualifying standards), Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR).

For more information, to request an application, or to determine whether or not you qualify, call NDTC at 662.1100.
