Application must be filled out by August 31, 2021 to receive a P-EBT card for the summer of 2021. Children may also qualify for broadband benefits. Eligibility for monthly internet service discount Because your child is eligible for free or reduced price meals under the NSLP or SBP, you are eligible for the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) Emergency Broadband Benefit Program (EBB Program).

The EBB Program provides a monthly discount of not more than $50 per month on broadband service and associated equipment (for example, a modem) for eligible households and not more than $75 per month for households on qualifying Tribal lands. If the participating household chooses an eligible plan that costs $50/month or less, the household will receive that service for free, at least until the EBB Program ends. Each participating household may also be reimbursed up to $100 for one connected device—a laptop, desktop, or tablet computer—where available from a participating broadband provider, as long as the household contributes more than $10 and less than $50 towards the cost of the device. Each participating household is limited to a single device discount. How to apply for monthly internet service discount To apply, you can fill out an application (either online, by mail, or through a participating service provider) and submit a copy of this letter as documentation verifying your child/children receives school meal benefits through the NSLP or SBP.
