Lifeline Assistance Discount Program

At Great Plains Communications we’re committed to helping residential customers in Nebraska gain access to affordable phone service to ensure they stay connected to family and friends, regardless of their income. Thanks to the Nebraska Telephone Assistance Program (NTAP) we can do that!

The Lifeline Discount Program

With the help of NTAP, Great Plains Communications provides qualifying low-income subscribers with reduced rates on monthly phone charges. To be eligible for the discount program, you must currently participate in one of the following:

  • Medicaid
  • Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
  • Federal Housing Assistance
  • Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program

Have questions or want to apply? Get in touch with your local Health and Human Services agency caseworker or the Nebraska Public Service Commission by calling 1-800-526-0017.


Assistance for Customers on Tribal Lands

The FCC provides federal broadband assistance to low-income customers currently living on tribal lands, offering a discounted amount per primary connection to qualifying residents. Customers who qualify can receive a discount that reduces the basic local service rate to just $1 per month and will waive the connection charge, up to $70.

If you qualify for tribal land assistance, please give Great Plains Communications a toll free call today to request an enrollment form or contact your local Bureau of Indian Affairs office.
