Free Government Phones

District of Columbia: Listing of Free Govt Phone Providers

Thanks to the Federal Lifeline program, eligible low-income residents in the District of Columbia can get help with their phone bills. There are two options:

District of Columbia
  • Receive a monthly discount on a landline phone
  • Receive a free government phone with free talk/text and data

While most phone service providers can offer the discounted landline option (call your current landline company and ask), not all wireless providers offer free phones.

However, with the creation of the Federal Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) more phone companies are offering either a free device or a deep discount towards the purchase of a device such as a tablet, laptop or computer. The plans vary from company to company so take your time and choose the right company and plan for you.

Below is a listing of services providers that offer either Lifeline and or ACP benefits in the District of Columbia:

This list is not a comprehensive listing of all free phone providers in District of Columbia. As we come across more providers, we will update the list.

If you know of anyone who could benefit from this program, please share this with them.
