Washington, DC (March 4, 2021) - Last week, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) unanimously voted to adopt a Report and Order that establishes and implements a $3.2 billion federal digital inclusion program that provides qualifying households discounts on their internet service bills and an opportunity to receive a discount on a computer or tablet.

The temporary Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) program is set to be launched in the spring of 2021 and expire when funds have been exhausted or six months after the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has declared the end of the COVID-19 public health emergency.
