Right now, more than ever, Michigan’s most vulnerable must have access to the emergency services and community resources they need. But having a reliable, simple way to access those resources is something that far too many across our state struggle with from time to time.
To raise awareness for this
issue and help those affected, the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners, the National Association of State Utility
Consumer Advocates, and the Federal Communications Commission have joined together and designated September 14-18 as Lifeline Awareness Week in the United States.
requirements over the years. You
may qualify if your household has an income level that is at or below 135 percent of the federal poverty level,
or if you participate in assistance pro- grams such as Medicaid, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, Supplemental Security Income, Federal Public Housing Assistance (Section 8), Tribal Eligibility Programs, or Veterans and Survivors Pension Benefit Program.
If you or someone you know has been struggling to afford the services they need to stay connected, contact your local telecommunications provid- er to find out if they participate in the Lifeline Program – many do.
You can also visit Michigan.gov/ mpsc and click on ‘consumer informa- tion’ to learn more. No one should ever have to go without the help or critical services they need.
Lifeline Awareness Week is cele- brated each year to ensure that eligible low-income families and other eligible individuals are aware of the Lifeline Program and its eligibility criteria. The program helps low-income consumers connect to the nation’s voice and broad- band networks, find jobs, access health care services, connect with family, and call for help in an emergency, providing discounts on monthly services for quali- fied customers.
The Lifeline Program has made various changes to their eligibility
