Government has provided assistance is providing free government cell phones in Colorado. Yes you heard it right; the name of the program itself is “Free Government cell phones.” This program has been aiding the people since 2008 with the intention of providing the people with cell phones who can’t afford it.
Cell phones are no longer considered a luxury but it has become the basic necessity of every individual. With these cell phones, residents can keep in touch with family and friends, provide emergency service (9-11), and provide you a form of contact for potential employers.
There are certain options before claiming for free cell phone. Residents of low-income families can claim:
- Food stamps
- SSI-Supplemental Security Income
- National School Lunch- that means if you get free lunch
Colorado residents with less than 135% of the Federal Poverty guidelines then you are eligible to claim for the free cell phone. Once the proposal of Free Government Program is passed, all you need to do to claim the phone is just associated with any of the public assistance program and you will be qualified for the phone.
