The benefit will continue until there is no longer funding or six months after the federal government declares an end to the pandemic. Eligible households will be able to receive:

- $50/month discount for high‐speed internet services.

- A one‐time discount of up to $100 for a laptop, desktop computer or tablet purchased through a participating provider.
