Emergency Broadband Benefit Program

All DuBois Area School District families qualify for discounted internet service under the new emergency broadband benefit (EBB) program. The Federal Communications Commission has launched the temporary EBB program to help families and households 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. 

Eligible households can enroll through a participating broadband provider or directly with the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) using an online or mail in application.

You can learn more about the benefit, including eligibility and enrollment information, by visiting the Federal Communications Commission website or by calling (833) 511-0311. Please also see our emergency broadband benefit news release for more information.
