USAC Webinar: Emergency Broadband Benefit Program – Overview for Consumer Advocates
Thursday, July 8, 2021 4:00-5:00 PM ET
The Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) is a temporary Federal Communications Commission (FCC) program to help eligible families and households who are struggling to afford internet service during the COVID-19 pandemic. It provides discounts on services and devices. Over 2.8 million households have already enrolled, but there are many more that qualify.
To help increase awareness about the EBB, the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) will be conducting a webinar for grassroots advocates, navigators, and others helping their local communities get connected. The webinar will cover program basics, a walk-through of the online application process, and resources available to help drive enrollment. It is free to attend, but you must register.
