FCC Grants Lifeline Waiver Extension Through June 30, 2022


The FCC’s Wireline Competition Bureau has waived certain Lifeline program rules governing documentation requirements for subscribers residing in Tribal rural areas, recertification, recertification, general de-enrollment, and income documentation through June 30, 2022.  The Commission has found good cause to grant these waiver extensions due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Although the Bureau will continue to evaluate whether an additional extension may be necessary, the FCC anticipates that this will likely be the final extension of these waivers.
