Allconnect: Internet Subsidy for Low-Income Households
Many low-income families have been disproportionately impacted by the lack of accessibility to broadband services during the pandemic. In the past, some may have been able to get by without full access to the internet or using shared computers and devices. However, with jobs and schools shifting to a virtual environment, these families are having to choose between paying their internet bills and maintaining basic household needs like groceries and rent.

The Allconnect guide includes:

  • Detailed Explanation of the Broadband Benefits
  • How to Qualify for the Internet Subsidies Program
  • Information about Closing the Digital Divide for Low-Income Households
