CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- The West Virginia Public Service Commission is reminding low-income families that they can stay connected to local resources and emergency services through Lifeline, a telephone assistance program. Access to a telephone provides a connection to emergency services and community resources.
The program can provide basic telephone service with discounts that range from a few dollars to $14 or $15 per month. Companies serving the majority of West Virginia's wire line and cell phone customers offer the program.
For more information, or to find out if you qualify, call your local telephone company or visit the PSC website at www.psc.state.wv.us.
