Every Tacoma Public Schools family is automatically eligible for a program that helps connect people to affordable internet service. 

The benefit provides:

  •  Up to $75/month discount for households on qualifying Tribal lands
  •  A one-time discount of up to $100 for a laptop, desktop computer or tablet purchased through a participating provider
