Emergency Broadband Benefit Program

Qualified Oregonians can begin applying for $50 off their monthly internet bill as part of an emergency government program to keep people connected during the pandemic.
There is also a $100 reimbursement for desktop computers, laptops or tablets.
For example, your household is eligible if you receive food stamps, have a child in the free or reduced-price school lunch program, use Medicaid, or lost income during the pandemic and made less than $99,000 for single filers, or $198,000 for joint filers. There are other eligibility requirements, click on link below to find out if you qualify.
The $3.2 billion program is part of the national $900 billion pandemic-relief package approved in December. The federal government is increasing spending on broadband as the pandemic made stark that millions of Americans did not have access to or could not afford broadband at a time when jobs, school and health care was moving online.
