Benefit Qualifying Person

In households that qualify for the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program because a child under the age of 18 in the household participates in the Free and Reduced-Price School Lunch Program or another EBB Program-qualifying program, an adult member of the household must complete the EBB Program application.

On the EBB Program application, the eligible child or dependent should be listed in the Benefit Qualifying Person section.

Children under the age 18 are not eligible to apply for the EBB Program themselves unless the government has declared them an Emancipated Minor.
