Emergency Broadband Benefit Program – Federal Communication Commission (FCC)

The Emergency Broadband Benefit provides a discount of up to $50 per month toward broadband service for eligible households and up to $75 per month for households on qualifying Tribal lands. Eligible households can also receive a one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet from participating providers.

If you are unable to have home internet access, the district may provide families hotspots. These hotspots only work with EGUSD issued Chromebooks. If you need a hotspot, or your current hotspot is no longer working, please contact your school for assistance.
