The Federal Communications Commission has launched a temporary program to help families and households struggling to afford Internet service during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Emergency Broadband Benefit provides a discount of up to $50 per month toward broadband service for eligible households and up to $75 per month for households on qualifying Tribal lands. Eligible households can also receive a one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet from participating providers.
You can apply now if you are eligible! Students in Evangeline Parish Pubic Schools all attend a CEP school and therefore are eligible for this temporary benefit. Each household can only qualify for a single benefit even if the household has multiple students.
