California Teleconnect Fund (CTF)

The CTF is a program run by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) that provides a 25% discount on select telephone services and 50% discounts on broadband services to schools, libraries, hospitals and about 7,000 Community Based Organizations (CBOs). Money for the discount comes from a surcharge paid by telephone customers (“ratepayers”) on their monthly phone bills.
501(c)3 and 501(d) nonprofits can apply for the Fund as a Community Based Organization.
