  • Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) For Those Needing Internet Access

If you need internet access, the FCC opened the Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) enrollment on May 12, 2021. The Emergency Broadband Benefit is a temporary program developed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The program will end once the program funds are exhausted, or six months after the Department of Health and Human Services declares an end to the pandemic, whichever comes first. Eligible households can receive up to $50/month discount for broadband service and associated equipment rentals and a one time discount of up to $100 for a laptop, desktop computer, or a tablet purchased through a participating provider. There are three ways to apply for the Emergency Broadband Benefit:
