NHMC President & CEO, Brenda Victoria Castillo’s Statement on Lifeline During COVID-19 Crisis

“NHMC has historically and continues to be a strong defender of the Federal Communication Commission’s (FCC) Lifeline program–the only subsidy available to help low income individuals afford communications services. This week NHMC joins over 200 allies in urging the FCC to immediately prohibit the disconnection of Lifeline subscribers, require Lifeline providers to offer unlimited minutes and text messages, and to create an Emergency Lifeline Broadband Benefit.”
