Missouri: Listing of Free Government Phone Providers

Missouri residents who are having a difficult time paying their phone bills may qualify for the Federal Lifeline and Affordable Connectivity Programs (ACP).


Lifeline and ACP are federal programs administered by the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The purpose is to provide internet and cell phone service for low-income individuals and families. The assistance may come in the form of a free cell phone or tablet with free airtime/texting and data, or you may opt for a discounted landline service.

While most phone companies participate in the landline monthly phone discount (just call your phone company and ask), not all companies offer free phones. Below is a listing of phone providers offering free government devices and/or free wireless service in the state of Missouri:

The above list may not include all companies providing free and discounted Lifeline phone service in Missouri, but it's a start. As we become aware of additional companies, they'll be added to the list. Similarly, if the companies no longer operate in the state, we'll delete them.

Did you know?

Did you know? That as of April 2023 (according to the Universal Service Administrative Company ), only 18% of the eligible Missouri population is utilizing the benefits of the Lifeline program? There are over 644,000 eligible Missouri houseolds and only a little over 113,000 have signed up for Lifeline benefits.

If you know of someone who could benefit from signing up for Lifeline, please share this with them.
