For over three decades the Lifeline program has helped millions of low-income Americans gain access to the phone services they need. Now the Federal Communications Commission would like to apply this successful model to help address the greatest communications need of our time: high speed Internet.

We believe the Lifeline program can help close the digital divide and bring millions of poor families online. Sign the petition to lend your support to this expansion of the Lifeline program.
