Help Illinois Families Get Connected to Affordable Internet Service at Home

June 17, 2021

ILA is excited to be working with Heartland Forward and other partners in Illinois to make sure qualified residents know help is now available to get them connected during the pandemic. The federal Emergency Broadband Benefit is a temporary program that provides discounts of up to $50 a month for internet service at home. Participants also get a one-time discount of up to $100 for a device  (purchased through a participating provider).

We encourage member libraries to help spread the word! Check out Heartland Forward’s toolkit of printable and shareable Emergency Broadband Benefit awareness materials, including informational flyers, social media content, and program applications. To learn more or to apply, visit the website. Here is the application for EBB in English and in Spanish.
