According to the FCC, "Households enrolled in the Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) Program as of 12/31/21 will continued to receive their current monthly benefit during a 60-day transition period"

The EBB program will effectively end by Dec.31 and will transition to a more permanent subsidy of $30 dollars at a future point, as mandated in the Infrastructure Bill.
