The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has released initial guidance on both the Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) and the Emergency Connectivity Fund (ECF).
The Natchitoches Parish School Board encourages the qualifying families of our students to utilize this program to create a more connected learning environment in their home where broadband is available.
Benefits available to qualifying households may include:
Up to a $50/month discount on your broadband service and associated equipment rentals
Up to a $75/month discount if your household is on qualifying Tribal lands
A one-time discount of up to $100 for a laptop, tablet, or desktop computer (with a co- payment of more than $10 but less than $50)
After the EBB program opens on May 12, 2021, families can apply by visiting https://GetEmergencyBroadband.org.
