Emergency Broadband Benefit Program

The Emergency Broadband Benefit Program by the FCC provides a temporary discount on monthly bills for qualifying households.  Recipients may receive up to $50/month discount on broadband service and associated equipment rental and a one-time discount of up to $100 for a laptop, tablet or desktop computer.  Your household qualifies for this benefit if your service provider participates and if you have a Pulaski County Student in your home because our school system participates in USDA Community Eligibility Provision providing all students with free meals at school.

Oak Hill Elementary, Southern Elementary and Southern Middle Schools are not on the list of schools preapproved by the FCC.  Because of this, if your child attends one of these schools you will need to obtain a letter from the school certifying that the child is enrolled in Pulaski County and receives benefits as part of the CEP program.  Once you have the letter, you can complete the application online uploading the documentation at that time.

Step-by-Step instructions for completing the online application can be found HERE.
