Internet Connectivity Grant
We are writing to inform you that there is a unique opportunity to receive a significant discount on Internet services to support learning at home.
Eligibility for monthly internet service discount
If your child is eligible for free or reduced price meals under the NSLP or SBP, you are eligible for the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) Emergency Broadband Benefit Program (EBB Program). The EBB Program is a temporary federal program to help eligible households pay for internet service during the pandemic. The EBB Program provides a monthly discount of not more than $50 per month on broadband service and associated equipment (for example, a modem) for eligible households and not more than $75 per month for households on qualifying Tribal lands. If the participating household chooses an eligible plan that costs
$50/month or less, the household will receive that service for free, at least until the EBB Program ends.
