What is the Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) Program?
The Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) program is a temporary Federal program that provides qualified low-income consumers with free or discounted broadband service. The EBB program was established to ensure everyone has the opportunities that broadband internet service provides.
The Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) is responsible for administering and maintaining the EBB program. The USAC collects, maintains, supports and distributes information for the low-income EBB program. More information as well as program requirements can be found on the USAC website.
