Financial Assistance

Twin Valley partners with federal and state entities to provide financial assistance that can help you pay up to $47.02 per month for your phone and/or internet bill. In addition, you may be eligible for additional assistance for internet service through the Kansas Emergency Rental Assistance (KERA) program, a temporary program established to assist renters during the pandemic.


Lifeline Program

With the Lifeline program, you may be eligible to receive a monthly discount of up to $17.02 on phone and/or internet from Twin Valley.
