Last week the FCC announced that over six million households have enrolled into the Emergency Broadband Benefit – the country’s largest broadband affordability program. This continued success is in large measure because of each you — our over 32,000 outreach partners who have worked tirelessly to build EBB program awareness among your members and within your communities.
“The response to the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program confirms what many of us knew to be true: too many families remain offline because it’s too expensive for their monthly budget,” said Acting Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel. “Now, thanks to the Emergency Broadband Benefit, millions of kids can better keep up with their schoolwork, parents can train for their next jobs, and patients can stay in contact with their doctors. The FCC is not stopping until we reach as many eligible families so they too can get the support they need.”
