Emergency Broadband Benefit Webinar for Consumers and Outreach Partners

3:00 pm - 7:00 pm EDT

The FCC hosted this public webinar to provide information on the Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB). The EBB is a temporary program that provides a discount of up to $50 per month ($75 on Tribal lands) off a qualifying households’ internet bill. For eligible households there is the potential for a discount of up to $100 towards the purchase of a tablet, laptop or desktop computer from a participating provider so long as the eligible purchaser contributes more than $10 and less than $50 toward the purchase price.

The webinar provided consumers and outreach partners with an overview of the EBB program, eligibility information, and enrollment procedures. During the event, the FCC provided an overview of the outreach tool kit materials that have been developed for partners and the public to use to create awareness about the temporary program.

Open captioning was provided for this event. Other reasonable accommodations for people with disabilities are available upon request. Requests for such accommodations should be submitted via e-mail to fcc504@fcc.gov or by calling the Consumer & Governmental Affairs Bureau at (202) 418-0530 (voice).
