Did you know that every household with a child at a Chicago Public School is eligible to receive up to a $50 discount on their internet bill and a one-time discount of $100 on a device? Through the Emergency Broadband Benefit, families can take advantage of this program and receive the support they need to get and stay connected.
We’re asking all you Chicago teachers out there to help us send a backpack letter home to help inform families about this important benefit. How do you participate? Easy! Print this flyer and ask your students to take it home to their parents.
For more information, visit the FCC’s EBB webpage and view this FAQ to learn more about the EBB program. Translated materials are available via the following links: Spanish, Arabic, Amharic, Burmese, Chinese, French, Haitian Creole, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Somali, Tagalog, and Vietnamese. For questions and support, schools and families should email [email protected] or call (833) 511-0311.
