The California LifeLine Program provides discounted home or cell phone service to qualified households.

California LifeLine has partnered with Boost Mobile to give CARE (California Alternate Rates for Energy) Program participants a monthly $15 discount towards Boost Mobile prepaid cell phone plans. California Lifeline will distribute a unique one-time-use promo code to CARE Program participants as a part of this limited duration pilot program.

CARE and Boost Mobile Pilot Interim Changes to Help Get Telecommunications and Data Resources into the Hands of CARE Program Participants Quickly
CARE participants may now sign-up for the CARE and Boost Mobile pilot without having to go to a retail location.   With enrollment, you will receive a $15/month discount from the CA LifeLine fund on service for the duration of the pilot.  If you are on an unlimited plan, you will see an increase in your Mobile Hotspot data allowance.  If you are on a plan that has limited data, you will receive an EXTRA 20GB of data from Boost Mobile for use by April 30, 2020, in addition to the monthly data allotment already included in the pilot program participant’s service plan of choice.
It is FAST and EASY to join the CARE and Boost Mobile Pilot:
  • If you are not already a Boost Mobile subscriber, go online to Boostmobile.com and sign-up for the service plan that best meets your need, with your existing compatible device, or purchase a new device that will be mailed via next-day delivery.
  • Then, call or text 1-833-2SAVE15 and provide the call agent with a copy of your electric bill, your first and last name, your handset ESN (if available) and your Boost Mobile phone number (existing or newly assigned).
