  • Up to $75 month discount for broadband services per household on tribal lands;

  • A one-time discount of up to $100 for a laptop, desktop or tablet computer purchased through a participating provider.

  • Qualifies for the FCC’s existing program, Lifeline, to help make communications services more affordable for low-income consumers;

  • 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;
