How It Works
Qualifying households receive a $50 monthly credit to help pay for Internet service. This benefit will provide millions of Americans with access to critical services like telemedicine, education, employment, social services, banking, email, shopping, news, emergency information and so much more.
The program is available in every US state and territory and tens of millions of Americans qualify. If even one person in a household receives, qualifies for, or participates in any of the below-listed programs, that entire household is eligible for the EBB program.
- Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
- Federal Public Housing Assistance
- Veterans and Survivors Pension Benefit
- Lifeline Program
- Tribal Programs for Residents on Qualifying Tribal Lands
- USDA School Breakfast/Lunch Program
- Pell Grant Funding
Households that have experienced income loss during the pandemic and meet certain income requirements are also eligible under the program. This program is only available for six months or until funds are no longer available, so customers are encouraged to sign-up and determine eligibility as soon as possible. Program enrollment opened May 12.
