Families struggling to make ends meet can get a break on the cost of internet with the help of the Federal Communications Commission’s Emergency Broadband Benefit Program.

Millions of households across Charter’s 41-state operating area are eligible for a credit up to $50 per month, up to $75 for households on tribal lands, toward qualifying Spectrum internet plans for the duration of the program.

Qualifying households are determined based on criteria and income levels that make them eligible for the National School Lunch Program, including the community eligibility provision; Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program; or Supplemental Security Income benefits.
