The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has authorized a new Emergency Broadband Benefit. This benefit will provide a discount of $50 per month for eligible low-income households or $75 per month for households on Tribal lands to cover internet bills, as well as provide discounts on some devices. This program can also be combined with Lifeline benefits. The FCC has developed a consumer FAQ, which provides information about eligibility and program details. Enrollment is expected to start by the end of April.

On April 15th, 2021, presenters from the Administration for Community Living and the Federal Communications Commission will share more information about the new Emergency Broadband Benefit program in a webinar on Increasing Connectivity with the Emergency Broadband Benefit. Legal assistance and aging services programs can get more information on how to help their communities access this benefit.
