Essentially a repost from me here; times are tough: I have been promoting this opportunity on Facebook and Instagram and wanted people to know the Oregon Public Utility Commission has created – Oregon Lifeline – a federal and state government program that reduces the monthly cost of phone or broadband service for qualifying low-income Oregon households. It does not appear to cover Verizon but does cover AT&T. See the website for full details.
COVID-19 Note: Effective February 1 through June 30, 2021, the Oregon Lifeline program is providing an additional $5 discount per month. Oregon residents on federally-recognized Tribal lands may qualify for an additional $25 discount per month.
Discount amounts are subject to change. Federal and state regulations limit the Lifeline benefit to one person per household for phone or broadband service. Details here.
