Timing

This tracker will be updated on a weekly and monthly basis. Enrollment data will be updated weekly. Support claimed and remaining funds will be updated on a monthly basis.

The tracker was last updated on January 3, 2021.

Enrollment by Zip Code

ZIP3 Data: The Zip3 Excel file allows users to view the total enrolled households by the first three digits of a ZIP code (ZIP3). To protect subscriber privacy and to reduce the risk of identification of enrolled households, USAC has redacted any ZIP3s with a population under 20,000, according to the latest Census information. These redacted ZIP3s are identified as “000.”

Full Zip Code Data: A second Zip5 Excel file allows users to view the total enrolled households by the full five-digit ZIP code as of the first of the month, starting with August 1. USAC has redacted any ZIP codes meeting the criteria developed by the FCC to protect subscriber privacy and to reduce the risk of identification of enrolled households.  ZIP codes are excluded if their estimated population is below 50, if a population estimate for the ZIP code is not available in the American Community Survey, if there are fewer than 1,000 enrolled households in a ZIP code and those households comprise most of a ZIP code’s estimated population, or if the number of EBB enrolled households in a ZIP code equals or exceeds the population estimate range for that ZIP code.

Enrollment by County

County Data: The County Excel file allows users to view the total enrolled households by county as of November 1, 2021. This data will be updated on a quarterly basis. County name, state, state FIPS, and county FIPS are included.

Note: Federal Information Processing System (FIPS) codes are numbers that uniquely identify geographic areas. The number of digits in FIPS codes vary depending on the level of geography. State-level FIPS codes have two digits; county-level FIPS codes have five digits–of which the first two are the FIPS code of the state to which the county belongs.

Definitions

Appropriation refers to the total program funding that is available for the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program (EBB Program) from the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021. The amount listed excludes funding designated for administrative costs.

EBB Program Providers are broadband providers that have elected to participate in the EBB Program. These providers are required to submit a reimbursement request through the EBB Program claims process in the Lifeline Claims System in order to receive reimbursement from the Emergency Broadband Connectivity Fund for discounts on internet monthly broadband services and associated equipment rentals, and a one-time reimbursement for connected devices, if available, provided to enrolled households.

Monthly Broadband Support refers to the total amount claimed by EBB Program Providers for reimbursement of EBB discounts provided to enrolled EBB households to reduce the standard rate of eligible broadband service and associated equipment rentals in a given month.

Newly Enrolled Households refers to the number of EBB Program households that are newly enrolled in the National Lifeline Accountability Database (NLAD) as of the data week.

One-Time Connected Device Reimbursement refers to a single reimbursement to an EBB Program Provider of up to $100 for one connected device per household.  Connected devices are defined as laptops, desktop computers, or tablets.  EBB Program Providers are not required to offer a connected device through the EBB Program.

Reimbursement Type refers to the type of benefit claimed by an EBB Program Provider. Providers may claim a monthly discount on the standard rate for broadband service for eligible households or a one-time device reimbursement per household.

Support Claimed refers to the amount of reimbursement that is claimed by EBB Program Providers for provision of EBB discounts to households. Providers certify the total monthly support amount each month in order to receive reimbursement.

Tribal Status refers to whether or not the claimed household lives on qualifying Tribal lands. Households on Tribal lands can receive a monthly EBB discount of up to $75, whereas non-Tribal subscribers can receive up to $50 for monthly broadband service and associated equipment rentals.
