Digital Connectivity and Lifeline Awareness Week
Digital Connectivity and Lifeline Awareness Week (formerly named Lifeline Awareness Week) is an annual outreach event that takes place the first full week after Labor Day in partnership with the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) and National Association of State Utility Consumer Advocates (NASUCA). The week is designed to both raise awareness of and increase participation in Lifeline and the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). Promotion of these programs is aimed at helping ensure no one gets left out of crucial telecommunications services simply because they cannot afford it. Internet is no longer a luxury, but a necessity for everyone, everywhere.
