Emergency Broadband Benefit

What is the EBB Program?

  • The EBB program, run by the FCC, offers a monthly discount to offset the cost of broadband internet subscriptions, helping those that are struggling with connectivity get and stay connected.

    What does EBB Cover?

  • The Emergency Broadband Benefit is a monthly discount of up to $50 on broadband services for households and increases to $75/month for households on tribal lands. If the consumer chooses an eligible plan that regularly costs $50/month or less, the consumer will receive that service for free.
  • This program is not limited to standalone internet services. Discounts may also apply to bundled services that include voice, text, and service packages that include devices such as routers, modems, or hotspots. However, eligible bundled services may not include voice service and cable TV.
  • Eligible households can also receive a one-time $100 benefit for devices such as laptops and tablets.

RESOURCES

Note: Since the creation of these resources, the FCC has expanded the eligibility requirements to include individuals who were approved for the free and reduced-price school lunch/breakfast program during 2021-22.
