Updates on the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program
The Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) is a temporary program offered by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to provide affordable access to internet service. The program works with participating internet providers to offer a monthly discount of up to $50 for a single internet connection to qualifying households. This discount may be up to $75 per month for a qualifying household on Tribal lands. Participating internet providers may also offer up to a $100 one-time discount on a laptop computer, desktop computer, or tablet through the program.
In order to promote the EBB program, the FCC created the EBB Outreach Toolkit with many helpful resources to assist Tribal organizations, community outreach organizations, or anyone interested in informing their communities about the EBB program. The toolkit features pamphlets, flyers, and posters in a PDF format, newsletter samples, social media post samples, images and graphics, and audio announcements. The information posted on the toolkit page is free to use and can be edited and customized to meet individual needs.
