Do you qualify for free internet?

Part of the bill included the Emergency Broadband Connections Act of 2020. The Act makes funds available to expand broadband access to students, families and unemployed workers. It includes $3.2 billion for the newly created Emergency Broadband Benefit Program. The benefit’s strategy is to provide free, or at least low-cost, broadband service access to low-income families. This will also include those who were recently laid off or furloughed due to COVID-19. Eligible households will receive a $50 discount for the cost of internet connectivity. Under Section 904 of the Program, you can qualify for $50 relief funds if you meet any of the following requirements:
