California Teleconnect Fund

The California Teleconnect Fund (CTF) provides discounts to:

  • Education: K-12, community colleges, libraries
  • Public healthcare: government-owned hospitals and health clinics
  • Non-profit organizations providing healthcare and education

Approved organizations may get discounts off recurring monthly charges on eligible Sprint services within California.



The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) established CTF in 1996. Customers who purchase intrastate telecommunications services pay a surcharge that funds the program.

CPUC administers CTF, and Sprint is a participating vendor. Our CTF service provider identification number is U-5112-C.


Many services are eligible for CTF discounts. If your organization receives FCC funds or subsidies, the CTF discount is applied after the FCC funding.

To receive CTF discounts, your organization must apply and CPUC must approve your application. Application details are available in the guidebook.

See pricing on select services.
