2018 Seniors Support Lifeline Sign on Letter
Please join organizations representing senior citizens to oppose drastic cuts to the federal Lifeline program, the only federal program targeted at assisting low-income households with the cost of broadband and telephone service. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) recently made a number of proposals which will gut this critical program by taking steps to:
• eliminate service for approximately 70 percent of current participants;
• restrict voice service support to only low-income households in rural areas; and
• impose ineffective and administratively complex self-enforcing budget caps and mandatory co-pays which will particularly harm seniors.

The sign on letter is for ORGANIZATIONS. The text of the letter is available at:

***The deadline for signing is April 13, 2018. If you have questions, contact Cheryl Leanza at 202-904-2168 or cleanza@alhmail.com. ***
