I've posted this elsewhere but it's pretty helpful if you qualify, so I'm reposting here:
Apply for the Emergency Broadband Benefit. If you qualify, you can get $50/month off your internet bill, as long as your provider participates in the program. I think all the big ones do, but those of us that live in the country without cable access might not be able to use it.
Also check if you qualify for the federal Lifeline program, which offers a discount on phone service. I think it's about $10/month. You can apply here: https://www.lifelinesupport.org/get-started/
These are legitimate government programs–not a scam.
