Minnesota Telephone Assistance Plan and Lifeline
The Minnesota Telephone Assistance Plan (TAP) program is a state-funded monthly discount on local telephone service for qualified residents. Lifeline is a federally funded discount on local telephone or broadband service for qualified residents. Qualifying households located on Tribal lands may receive an additional discount on local telephone activation charges through the Link-up program.
Minnesota Telephone Equipment Distribution Program
The Minnesota Telephone Equipment Distribution (TED) Program provides free specialized telecommunications equipment to income-eligible Minnesotans who have trouble using the telephone due to a hearing, speech or physical disability.
Communication Help for Hearing & Speech Impaired
Minnesota Relay is a free service that allows persons with hearing or speech disabilities to place and receive telephone calls by using a specially trained communications assistant (CA) to facilitate the telephone conversation. Calls can be made to anywhere in the world (long distance charges apply), 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. All calls are completely confidential.
Arvig customers are notified yearly of the availability of MN Relay service.
