Some Families Eligible for Discounted Broadband Service

Big picture

Families whose children participate in the free or reduced-price lunch and breakfast programs at school may qualify for a $50-a-month discount on broadband internet service under a temporary program administered by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). In addition, Pell Grant recipients may be eligible for the discount, as well.

Households with a child who has received approval for benefits under the under the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) or the School Breakfast Program (SBP), including a child who attends a school participating in the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Community Eligibility Provision (CEP), during the 2019-20 and 2020-21 school years are now eligible for the FCC’s Emergency Broadband Benefit Program (EBB Program). Pell Grant recipients, who are usually undergraduates with exceptional financial need, also qualify for the FCC’s EBB Program to help pursue postsecondary education if they received their grant during the 2020-21 award year.

In addition, each participating household may also receive a one-time discount of up to $100 for one connected device – a laptop, desktop, or tablet computer – where available from a participating broadband provider, as long as the household contributes between $10 and $50 towards the cost of the device.

Eligible families of K-12 students and eligible Pell Grant recipients can apply for the discount online, via mail, or through a participating service provider. Eligible households can find participating internet service providers in their area by entering their zip code into the Companies Near Me tool.
