FCC Expands Emergency Broadband Benefit Program Eligibility

On September 8, 2021, the Wireline Competition Bureau released a Public Notice announcing that it is expanding the school years that are acceptable for eligibility determination purposes for the Emergency Broadband Benefit (“EBB”) Program.  Households that applied for and have been approved to receive benefits under the free and reduced price school lunch program or school breakfast program for the 2021-2022 school year will now be eligible for the EBB Program.  Applicants are also eligible for the EBB Program if a member of the household applied for and received benefits during the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 school years or was enrolled in a school participating in the Community Eligibility Provision during those years.
