The (FCC) recently approved 3.2 billion dollars in funding for the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program (EBB).  This program allows qualified families to receive a free hotspot with the monthly service charges 100% covered. 

To qualify: the household must either qualify for federal assistance (SNAP, Medicaid, etc) or qualify for free/reduced lunch.

(A household can also qualify if they've earned in 2020: under 99K - single filer or under 198K - joint filer)

To receive your free hotspot or mobile device:

Step 1: Go to and fill out the relevant fields.

Step 2: Select device you would like to use

Step 3: Upload picture to provide proof of eligibility

This process takes 5-7 minutes to complete.  

This is 100% covered and there is no cost for this service.  However, the process must be completed by June 29th, 2021. At that time, the hotspots will be shipped directly to your child's school and they will distribute them to each qualified family.  

Please make sure to fill this out as soon as possible!
