FCC Seeks Outreach Partners for Emergency Broadband Benefit
- Published: Monday, March 1, 2021
The Emergency Broadband Benefit is an FCC program to help households struggling to pay for Internet service during the pandemic. This new benefit will connect eligible households to jobs, critical healthcare services and virtual classrooms. Under the program, eligible households may receive a discount off the cost of broadband service (up to $50.00 per month, and, on Tribal lands, the monthly discount may be up to $75.00 per month) and the cost of certain connected devices during an emergency period relating to the COVID-19 pandemic.
As always, we’ll keep abreast of changes and will share additional information as it’s available. Visit the FCC's Emergency Broadband Benefit page for more information as well.
