• If your invoice for services is less than $50.00 then you will receive the services at no cost to you. What if my bill is less than $50.00? Help is here for millions of Americans struggling to afford high-speed internet in their homes. As we know, quality home internet has become essential for work, school, and even our sanity during the pandemic. As such, Congress included the Emergency Broadband Benefit program to help Americans pay for broadband service.
The program will provide discounts of up to $50.00 a month, or $75.00 on Tribal lands for broadband service to those households that qualify. Households may even qualify for a one-time rebate of up to $100 on a qualifying tablet.
Who Qualifies for EBB? A household is eligible if at least one member of the household:
• Qualifies for the Lifeline program;
• Qualifies for Medicaid
• Qualifies for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)
• Qualifies for the Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
• Qualifies for Federal Public Housing Assistance (FPHA)
