COMCAST EMERGENCY BROADBAND BENEFIT
Comcast has issued a reminder that they are participating in the Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) program. EBB is a temporary subsidy program from the Federal Government designed to help low-income households connect to the Internet and stay connected during the COVID-19 crisis. Qualified households can receive a temporary monthly credit of up to $50/month toward their Internet service and leased Internet equipment until the program's funding runs out.
Internet Essentials customers automatically qualify for EBB but still must enroll in the EBB program. Non-Internet Essentials customers must confirm eligibility through the National Verifier. To qualify, a member in the applicant’s household must meet at least one of the following criteria:
• Qualifies for the federal Lifeline program, including:
o Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
o Federal Public Housing Assistance
o Veterans and Survivors Pension Benefit
o Tribal Programs for Residents for Qualifying Tribal Lands
• Receives benefits under the free and reduced-price school lunch program or the school breakfast program, including through the USDA Community Eligibility Provision, or did so in the 2019-2020 school year
• Experienced a substantial loss of income since February 29, 2020, and the household had a total income in 2020 below $99,000 for single filers and $198,000 for joint filers
• Received a federal Pell Grant in the current award year
