The Federal Communications Commission is asking for help to spread the word about the Emergency Broadband Benefit. This temporary program helps families struggling to afford Internet service during the COVID-19 pandemic. Having a broadband connection is essential for households to gain access to jobs, healthcare services, virtual classrooms, and so much more.
Enrollment for the Emergency Broadband Benefit is now open. The temporary benefit provides a discount of up to $50 per month toward broadband service for eligible consumers who are struggling to stay connected during the pandemic. Qualifying households on Tribal lands can receive a discount of up to $75 per month for service. To learn more or see if you qualify visit www.fcc.gov/broadbandbenefit
