Minnesota Muslim community observing the start of Ramadan
Minnesota Muslim community observing the start of Ramadan from March 22nd to April 21st.
What is Ramadan?
Ramadan is the 9th month in the lunar (moon) calendar. It begins with the sighting of the new moon and ends with another crescent new moon. An appropriate greeting for good wishes is “Ramadan Mubarak” which means “Have a blessed Ramadan.” Muslims fast from dawn to sunset for a month. They break their daily fast with an evening meal after sunset called “Iftar”. People break their fast with dates and water. After the evening meal, it is family time fun! Ramadan reminds Muslims to have compassion for those who are underprivileged and have a more difficult time getting food for themselves. After the end of Ramadan, Muslims celebrate Eid al-Fitr, the Festival of Breaking the Fast. During the festival, everyone wears their best clothes, give gifts, visit mosques, and spend time with their family during this day.

Discounted At-Home Internet
The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) provides eligible households a discount of up to $30 per month off their internet bills (or up to $75 per month for households living on Tribal lands), as well as a one-time discount of up to $100 off an eligible connected device like a laptop, desktop computer or tablet. In many cases, households can get high-speed internet without paying a dime by choosing a fully covered internet plan.
This announcement serves as a reminder that a household is eligible to participate in the ACP if a child in the household receives free or reduced-price school meals. Therefore, under the ACP rules, every household with a child attending a school participating in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) of the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program is eligible for ACP benefits.
Households can learn more and apply for the ACP at GetInternet.gov.
While this reminder is specific to schools that are participating in CEP, additional information about eligibility for CEP discount benefits can be found in the School Outreach Toolkit PDF (English) and School Outreach Toolkit PDF (Spanish). The toolkit provides information about ways households can qualify for the ACP, including through an individual student’s participation in the National School Lunch Program or School Breakfast Program providing free or reduced-price meals; through a household member’s participation in a wide range of other federal assistance programs like Medicaid, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, and many others; or based on the household’s income (up to 200% of the Federal Poverty Level).
