 Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) Begins Enrollment May 12th!

The Emergency Broadband Benefit is an an extension of the LifeLine program to help households struggling to pay for internet service during the pandemic. The EBB will provide a discount of up to $50 per month towards broadband service for eligible households and up to $75 per month for households on qualifying Tribal lands. Eligible households can also receive a one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet from participating providers if they contribute more than $10 and less than $50 toward the purchase price.

For Emergency Broadband Benefit general program information: 

To request a speaker for your next meeting or community gathering: 

The FCC announced that households with a member approved to receive benefits under the free and reduced-price school lunch program or the school breakfast program, including through the USDA Community Eligibility Provision, in the current 2021-2022 school year are also eligible for the Emergency Broadband Benefit. This expands on the original program eligibility rules that included the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 school years.   

Many students are already back in the classroom this year and broadband access is a critical tool for success.  Please help build awareness about the EBB program by sharing our new back-to-school toolkit materials with your community. 

See the public notice here: https://docs.fcc.gov/public/attachments/DA-21-1119A1.pdf
