Consumers can begin applying for and enrolling in the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program on May 12, 2021.

Show You Qualify

You can qualify for the Emergency Broadband Benefit by participating in certain government programs or by meeting income criteria.

When you apply for the Emergency Broadband Benefit using USAC�s online application, we will attempt to confirm your information automatically. If we cannot automatically approve your application, we will ask you to provide information or documentation to validate one or more of the categories below. We will also follow up to request additional documentation if the information you provide in a mailed application does not result in approval.

To confirm your eligibility, additional documentation can be mailed or submitted electronically. Please include a cover sheet with your name and application ID if you mail anything to USAC (the cover sheet will be released later this month.)
