Starting Wednesday (5/12) low income families will be eligible for a $50/mo reduction in their cost of broadband if they utilize a participating provider. (Most MN providers are participating) Note also that participation in the NSLP (Free/reduced priced lunch) program is a qualifying indicator for the FCC EBB program (there are many other ways to qualify as well), so you may be able to encourage families to sign up for free/reduced lunch to be eligible for the program.

Consumers should visit www.getemergencybroadband.org or call the toll free number 833-511-0311 specifically for information about the application.
