All households with a student enrolled in a DOE school or program are eligible for two types of benefits available:

(1) Monthly Benefit: Provides a discount of up to $50 per month for broadband service, equipment, and device rentals; and

(2) One-Time Device Discount: This is a one-time discount of up to $100 on a laptop, tablet, or desktop computer, where available.For more information about the program, and to see if your household is eligible, visit the following DOE page to see how you can apply: https://morningbellnyc.com/…/save-money-on-home-broadband/
