An estimated 42 million people in low-income or rural communities in the U.S. don't have access to hardwired broadband. If you’re one of them, read on for available resources. If you’re not in need, consider sharing this information out (just tap the “Share” button at the bottom).

LOW-INCOME INTERNET ACCESS: There is a government program, called Lifeline, that is available to low income families. In addition, there are programs available through many local internet providers in your area. https://www.fcc.gov/consumers/guides/lifeline-support-affordable-communications

COMPUTERS/LAPTOPS FOR LOW-INCOME FAMILIES: PCs for People has distributed over 115,000 computers over the last decades to low-income families. Learn more at https://pcsrefurbished.com/sales/salesHome.aspx

The On It Foundation also offers free computers and internet access to those who qualify. https://theonitfoundation.org/faqs/
