Eligibility for monthly internet service discount
If your child is eligible for free or reduced-price meals under the NSLP or SBP, you are eligible for the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) Emergency Broadband Benefit Program (EBB Program). The EBB Program is a temporary federal program to help eligible households pay for internet service during the pandemic. The EBB Program provides a monthly discount of not more than $50 per month on broadband service and associated equipment (for example, a modem) for eligible households and not more than $75 per month for households on qualifying Tribal lands. If the participating household chooses an eligible plan that costs $50/month or less, the household will receive that service for free, at least until the EBB Program ends.
