Affordable Internet Update (Emergency Broadband Benefit)

Lisa Matsubara Announcements

Sign up by the end of the year for the Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB), the federal program helping people stay connected during COVID-19. In January, EBB will transition to the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP).

To receive the maximum benefit of $50 per month ($75 for households on qualifying Tribal Lands) for two additional months during ACP implementation, eligible households should enroll in EBB by December 31st, 2021.

To find out if you qualify for EBB, how your family can apply, and what the program’s transition to ACP means for you, visit the EBB page on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) website.
