Assistance Programs for Affordable or Free Internet Service

The Emergency Broadband Benefit Program (EBB) is a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) program that provides a temporary discount on monthly broadband bills for qualifying low-income households. If your household is eligible, you can receive:

  • Up to a $50/month discount on your broadband service and associated equipment rentals
  • Up to a $75/month discount if your household is on qualifying Tribal lands
  • A one-time discount of up to $100 for a laptop, tablet, or desktop computer (with a co-payment of more than $10 but less than $50)

Only one monthly service discount and one device discount is allowed per household. To receive the connected device discount, consumers need to enroll in the EBB Program with a participating provider that offers connected devices (not all service providers offer device discounts). The service provider will provide the discount to the consumer.

The program will end when the fund runs out of money, or six months after the Department of Health and Human Services declares an end to the COVID-19 health emergency, whichever is sooner.

Are you Eligible?

A household is eligible if one member of the household meets at least one of the criteria below:

  • Has an income that is at or below 135% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines or participates in certain assistance programs, such as SNAP, Medicaid, or the FCC’s Lifeline program;
  • Approved to receive benefits under the free and reduced-price school lunch program or the school breakfast program, including through the USDA Community Eligibility Provision, in the 2019-2020 or 2020-2021 school year;
  • Received a Federal Pell Grant during the current award year;
  • Experienced a substantial loss of income through job loss or furlough since February 29, 2020, and the household had a total income in 2020 at or below $99,000 for single filers and $198,000 for joint filers; or

Peachjar Eflyer Distribution

Fallbrook Union Elementary School District (FUESD) uses Peachjar to electronically distribute flyers to students’ families. It is the district’s desire to provide a resource for local, community-based groups organized for the purposes of youth or family recreation and/or education. The District does not permit the distribution of flyers for commercial purposes.

Flyers must meet the following guidelines:

  • Flyers must be in English and Spanish
  • Flyers advertising fundraising by outside organizations or agencies will not be distributed.
  • Flyers promoting an activity, event, or class(es) with any fees, must have scholarships or financial assistance that provide a complete program at no cost available for students or families who wish to attend/participate, but are unable to pay. The availability of such assistance must be noted on the flyer.
  • Consistent with FUESD Board Policy 0410, events, classes, or activities must be open to all persons regardless of race, color, ancestry, national origin, ethnic group identification, age, religion, marital or parental status, physical or mental disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity or expression, or genetic information; the perception of one or more of such characteristics; or association with a person or group with one or more of these actual or perceived characteristics. Age and/or grade level restrictions are allowable.

FUESD reserves the right to deny any request that is not consistent with school objectives, does not support the basic educational mission of the district, does not directly benefit the students, or is not of intrinsic value to the students or their parents/guardians. The district also reserves the right to occasionally allow minor exceptions to these guidelines for community organizations it partners with; such requests will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Approval is at the sole discretion of FUESD.

Please visit Peachjar.com to submit your flyer for approval.

Information about Peachjar pricing can be found on the Peachjar website. Peachjar offers a Community Free Flyer Program. For information on how to post a flyer that qualifies for posting without charge, please CLICK HERE or contact support@peachjar.com. FUESD does not set or have the ability to waive any Peachjar fees.
