Emergency Broadband Benefit
In partnership with RemotEDx Connectivity Champions we are pleased to share information about a temporary program to assist 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. Eligible households can also receive a one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet from participating providers.
Among other eligible statuses, all students who qualify for the Federal Free and reduced Lunch Program as well as students in a Community Eligibility Provision school are eligible for the benefit. Eligible households can enroll through a participating broadband provider or directly with the Universal Service Administration Company (USAC) using an online application or mail in application. Learn more about the benefit, including eligibility and enrollment information, by visiting www.fcc.gov/broadbandbenefit or by calling 833-511-0311.
Families seeking assistance can also contact the RemotEDx Connectivity Champions who will guide families through the application process. Connectivity Champions can be reached by phone at 8440512-6446, email at firstname.lastname@example.org or through the web at https://www.ohio-k12.help/remotedx.
