Save Money on Your Phone Bill

The Idaho Telephone Service Assistance Program, or ITSAP, gives families a monthly discount for their monthly telephone services. Households can receive a benefit for their landline or one family member’s cell phone. Families who qualify for this program may also qualify for the Lifeline program which offers additional discounts. Ask your telephone provider for more information about ITSAP and Lifeline benefits.
