Emergency Broadband Benefits
Families can go to Reliance connect's website and the very first thing that comes up is the Emergency Broadband Benefit program.
Follow the prompts through the different paperwork and it is fairly easy to apply.
Families can receive $50.00 a month toward getting their internet connected. All they have to do is follow the links. Most of the programs through Reliance are only $59.00 so this would cover all but 9.00.
Families can qualify if they:
1- are low income,
2-have children that qualify for free and reduced lunches,
3-Received a Federal Pell Grant,
4-Are SNAP eligible,
5- Had a substantial loss of income due to job loss or were furloughed and had an income of below 99,000.00 single filers and 198,000.00 for Joint filers.
Or go directly to fcc.gov/broadbandbenefit
If the families cannot afford the $9.00 there is a program through the State of Oregon that will help with the last part.
