Discounted Internet Service
Your EBT card may qualify you for discounted home internet service under the Federal Lifeline program for low-income families and individuals. The program currently provides $9.25 a month per household toward phone or internet service.
Low-Cost Internet for Students
In today’s world, having access to reliable internet is critical for students – especially during the time of virtual learning. However, not all students have equal access to internet at home.
In fact, 15% of school-aged children in the United States do not have broadband internet access at home. Due to COVID-19, it’s imperative that students find ways to break this digital divide during distance learning.
