Step 3: Obtain a SAC

Study Area Code (SAC) requests should include a completed SAC Request Form, the ETC’s designation order, terms and conditions of Lifeline Program service, including service plans, and the compliance plan (if applicable).

All carriers previously designated to provide wireline service that subsequently are designated to provide wireless service must request a separate SAC.

For more information about SAC requests, please contact us via email.
