About the Event:
This year, the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC), which administers the Lifeline program on behalf of the Federal Communications Commission, will host Lifeline quarterly interactive webinars for Tribal stakeholders (e.g., Tribal governments and government agencies and nonprofits serving Tribal communities). During these webinar sessions, our subject-matter experts will discuss relevant program changes and provide updates to ensure Tribal partners remain informed and have the tools and information they need to more effectively help eligible Tribal consumers apply for the Lifeline program. Attendees can participate in a live Q&A session built into each webinar.
Below, you can find the dates for each virtual, free event and a link to register. Please feel free to share this invitation with your colleagues and Tribal networks. Although the host’s email address is listed on the registration page, please contact Kraynal Alfred, USAC’s Tribal Liaison, at TribalLiaison@usac.org with any questions about these events
