Paul Bunyan Communications, Leech Lake Band hold sign-up day for Affordable Connectivity Program

June 15 @ June 15, 2022 9:00 am - June 15, 2022 3:00 pm

Paul Bunyan Communications and the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe are holding a sign-up day for the Affordable Connectivity Program on Wednesday, June 15, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Facility Center.

This new long-term benefit will help to lower the cost of broadband service for eligible households struggling to afford internet service and provides a discount of up to a $30 per month toward broadband service for eligible households and up to $75 per month for qualifying households on qualifying Tribal lands.

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

  • An income that is at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines (for a family of four, that would be $55,500);
  • Participants in certain assistance programs, such as SNAP, Medicaid, Federal Public Housing Assistance, SSI, WIC or Lifeline;
  • Participates in one of several Tribal specific programs, such as Bureau of Indian Affairs General Assistance, Tribal Head Start, Tribal TANF, or Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations;
  • Is approved to receive benefits under the free and reduced-price lunch program or the school breakfast program, including through the USDA Commuinty Eligibility Provision;
  • Received a Federal Pell Grant during the current award year; or
  • Meets the eligibility criteria for a participating broadband provider’s existing low-income program.
