The Emergency Broadband Benefit program begins today (May 12, 2021)!

The Emergency Broadband Benefit program is a government program that will provide a discount of up to $50 per month towards broadband service for eligible households and up to $75 per month for eligible households on Tribal lands. The Emergency Broadband benefit is limited to one monthly service discount per household.  This program will be available until the funds in the program are depleted, or six months after the Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary declares the end of the COVID-19 health emergency.
