About the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program (EBB Program)
EBB Program is a temporary
federal program to help eligible households pay for internet service during the pandemic. Households with a child who is approved to receive free or reduced price meals under the NSLP or the School Breakfast Program (SBP), including children who attend schools participating in the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Community Eligibility Provision (CEP), are eligible for the EBB Program. This includes any child who currently receives benefits during the 2020–2021 school year or did so in the 2019–2020 school year. USAC administers the EBB Program under the direction of the FCC.

The benefit provides up to $50/month discount for broadband service and a one-time discount of up to $100 for a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet. Families of students enrolled at Sto-Rox School District are eligible for these benefits. If you already have internet service at home, contact your provider to add the EBB Program Benefit. To request broadband internet service as a new customer, you can also apply directly with providers. Below are a couple of links from approved providers:
