The program is part of national efforts to connect households to work, information, education, and other critical services available online.
The program provides eligible consumers with $50.00 in assistance per month for Mobile, Home Internet or a Data-only plan and a one-time discount of $100.00 for one tablet per household. This benefit is limited to the applicant only and cannot be transferred to another person.
You may qualify if you meet one of the following:
