About

AARP Mississippi hosted this Access Live event to discuss the Emergency Broadband Benefit program. Under this short-term program, Mississippi residents may be eligible for help to pay for their high-speed internet service. Joining the call were Mississippi’s Public Service Commissioners along with Coralette Hannon, a Senior Legislative Representative from the AARP DC National Office. This initiative is a $3.2 billion Federal Communications Commission (FCC) program to help Americans access the affordable, high-speed internet they need during the COVID-19 pandemic.
