Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) Program

One way a household is eligible for the EBB program is if they received benefits under the free and reduced price school lunch program or the school breakfast program, including through the USDA Community Eligibility Provision (CEP), or did so during the 2019-20 school year.

As such, you may be eligible to have up to $50 discounted from your monthly internet bill. You will need to apply for the EBB program and, after you are approved, the FCC will subsidize your monthly internet bill directly to the internet provider. It is important to note that you will not receive these funds yourself; the amount will be deducted from your monthly internet bill.

To participate in this program, you need to apply for the EBB. You can do that in one of three ways (beginning May 12):

For your application, you will need your verification of benefits letter as proof of your participation in the free and reduced lunch program.

  • Eligible parents received an email from the District Data Specialist, Sue Manion on Tuesday, May 11.
