Comcast is promoting the Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) program.  This is a temporary benefit from the Federal Government designed to help low-income households connect to the Internet and stay connected during the COVID-19 crisis. Qualified households can receive a temporary monthly credit of up to $50/month (up to $75/month for customers in Tribal Lands) toward their Internet service and leased Internet equipment until the program's funding runs out.  

Those eligible for this program include the following:

  • Internet Essentials customers automatically qualify for the Emergency Broadband Benefit and simply need to enroll in the program.  
  • Those qualified for a Lifeline program (such as Medicaid and SNAP), 
  • Those families eligible for free and reduced-price school lunch program, 
  • Pell Grant recipients, 
  • Households that experienced a substantial loss of income since February 29, 2020.
