Summary Report on FCC's Emergency Broadband Benefit Program & Affordable Connectivity Program
The FCC established a $3.2 billion program called the Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) Program to assist low-income households with paying for broadband services and devices such as computers and tablets. Applications for enrollment in the program opened on May 12, 2021. On December 31, 2021, after less than a year of operation, the EBB Program ended and was replaced by a long-term, $14 billion program called the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). Households that were enrolled in the EBB Program were automatically enrolled to continue receiving their EBB Program benefits during a 60-day transition period that ended March 1, 2022.
After this transition period, eligible households that are not on Tribal lands began receiving up to $30 per month for internet services rather than up to $50 per month. The benefit for households on Tribal lands continues to be up to $75 per month. Similar to the EBB Program, the ACP also offered eligible households a one-time discount of up to $100 to use toward a device such as a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet. In order to be eligible for this discount, the consumer has to provide a co-payment of at least $10 but no more than $50 toward the device. Eligible ACP participants are limited to receive one monthly discount and one device discount per household.
