FCC Extends COVID Waivers Impacting Lifeline and Affordable Connectivity Program Tribal Subscribers

In response to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Federal Communications Commission has waived certain Lifeline program rules in twelve previous Orders to provide necessary relief for low-income households. The FCC finds good cause exists to continue to waive the Lifeline recertification and reverification requirements for those Lifeline subscribers residing on Tribal lands through January 31, 2023. This waiver also addresses the potential impact that it may have on subscribers of both the Lifeline and Affordable Connectivity Programs that were required to undergo recertification for calendar year 2022.
