The Emergency Broadband Benefit Program (EBBP), which we announced last month, has now started! This FCC program temporarily provides broadband service to families struggling to afford internet connection. It includes a discount of up to $50 per month to eligible households, up to $75 per month for eligible households on Tribal lands, and a one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop, or tablet.
Please share this information with eligible students. The FCC has developed a web page with information about the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program, including how to apply and a toolkit page with resources in English and 12 other languages for sharing information about the program.
