Dear parents and caregivers,
The COVID-19 pandemic has emphasized the importance of connectivity and access to information. We want to make sure that everyone is aware of a new program available through the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), which will temporarily pay $50 a month toward cable or broadband internet services for those who qualify.
Beginning on May 12, 2021, households can apply in three ways:
1.) Contact your preferred participating broadband provider directly to learn about their application process;
2.) Visit GetEmergencyBroadband.org to apply online and to find participating providers near you;
3.) Call 833-511-0311 for a mail-in application, and return it along with proof of eligibility to: Emergency Broadband Support Center, P.O. Box 7081, London, KY 40742.
