COVID-19 Broadband Relief Program For Individuals

The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021, provided $3.2 billion for the creation of an Emergency Broadband Connectivity Fund to establish the Emergency Broadband Benefit program.  This program, administered by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), will help qualifying low-income families and households struggling to afford internet service during the COVID-19 pandemic public health emergency.  This program will provide a discount of up to $50 per month toward broadband service for eligible households and up to $75 per month for households on Tribal lands.  Eligible households can also receive a one-time discount to purchase Internet-connected devices.
