@getgovtgrants - Aid For Renting Housing For The Disabled

Maintaining a rental today is complicated. There are many people who each month have difficulties paying the rent of the house in which they live: in many cases, the salaries are not high enough and the rent represents a significant percentage of the income that enters a family . This is especially hard in cities like Madrid, where rents are very high and it is even more difficult for people with special needs, which is why aid for renting homes for the disabled is so important.

In addition, it is a sensitive issue in cases of people with disabilities, in most cases the expenses generated by the personal situation are high and it is very difficult to afford rent.

In situations where it is difficult to k

Do you need help paying for the Internet?
How does it work

Eligible households can receive up to $30 per month in assistance (up to $75 per month for households on tribal lands), to help pay for Internet service. Additionally, eligible households can receive a one-time $100 benefit to purchase devices such as laptops and tablets.

Note: This program was previously called the Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB). On January 1, 2022, Congress renamed it the "Affordable Connectivity Program" and made it a permanent program. Congress also reduced the benefit amount from $50 per month to $30 per month and changed the eligibility requirements. If you received the EBB, make sure your Internet provider continues to offer you the ACP and see if the changes affect the amount of your bill.

Am I eligible?

A household may be eligible in several ways: Does a student in your household receive free or reduced-price school lunches or breakfasts? Do you use Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Medicaid, Lifeline or other assistance programs? Are you a federal Pell Grant recipient? Are you having trouble paying for Internet service? If you answered 'yes' to any of these questions, you may be eligible! Learn more about this benefit and its requirements.

eligible for the EBB?
Are you eligible?

Various sources report that a household qualifies for the Emergency Broadband Benefit if they have income at or below 135% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines OR if any member of the household participates in SNAP, Medicaid, Income Security Supplemental, Federal Public Housing Assistance or Veterans and Survivors Pension Benefit. Other eligibility criteria include income impacted by COVID or other circumstances — a list is here .

The program will end when the money is spent or six months after the Department of Health and Human Services declares the end of the federal emergency related to the coronavirus pandemic. Internet providers will need to notify participants of the last date of the discount or partial discount, when the federal money runs out, to help with a possible transition to another program.

Wait, there's more!

EBB-eligible households can also receive a one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop or tablet from participating providers if the consumer contributes $10 to $50 toward the purchase price.

What is the Internet Discount Program

The Internet discount program (Affordable Connectivity Program or ACP for its acronym in English) is a federal contribution that allows the most vulnerable households in the United States to finance part of their internet account, provided they meet the requirements.

The initiative of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC, for its acronym in English) emerged in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic as an Emergency Broadband Benefit for the Internet (Emergency Broadband Benefit or EBB for its acronym in English), to go help of families who did not have enough resources to finance broadband internet for work, school and health services.

The EBB ended on December 31, 2021 and has since been replaced by the ACP program, which is now a long-term and permanent policy in support of the most vulnerable families in the United States. For 2022, it contemplates resources for $14,000 million dollars.

Emergency Internet Benefit (EBB)

Important Updates to the Emergency Internet Benefit (EBB)

Congress recently created the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). This is a new, long-term, $14 billion program that will replace the Emergency Internet Benefit. This investment will make connecting to the internet affordable and help ensure that we can access the connections we need for work, school, health services and beyond for a long time to come.

Households that are enrolled in the Emergency Internet Benefit as of December 31, 2021 will continue to receive their monthly subsidy until March 1, 2022.

What will change?

  • The maximum monthly subsidy amount will change from $50 to $30 for households not located on eligible Tribal lands. The maximum monthly subsidy amount will continue to be $75 for households located on eligible Tribal lands.
  • Households may be eligible for the Affordable Connectivity Program in new ways. Among others, for receiving WIC assistance or for having an income below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines .
  • Households with approved eligibility for the Emergency Internet Benefit due to a substantial reduction in income due to job loss or forced unpaid leave since February 29, 2020 or because they meet the eligibility criteria for a provider's COVID-19 program, they will need to resubmit their applications for the Affordable Connectivity Program.
  • In the coming weeks, we will make available more information related to the actions that current beneficiaries of the Emergency Internet Benefit program must take to continue receiving assistance, through the Affordable Connectivity Program, after the transition period. The FCC will seek comments on published changes to the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and adopt rules to implement the Affordable Connectivity Program. Please keep checking these pages for additional updated information.

Most families receiving the Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) will not need to take any action to continue receiving the new $30 monthly benefit after the transition period ends on March 1, 2022. If your expenses out-of-pocket costs increase as a result of the monthly benefit amount being reduced, your service provider will contact you to let you know if you need to take any other action to continue receiving the Affordable Connectivity Program benefit.

Families living on tribal lands who are eligible to receive a $75 monthly benefit will continue to receive it, and will not need to take any action to continue receiving the Affordable Connectivity Program benefit .

After the transition period ends on March 1, 2022, the monthly discount for all former EBB program participants who do not live on eligible tribal lands will be reduced to $30. Contact your provider if you are concerned about a possible increase in your monthly service bill or if you are interested in changing plans.

Ten Funding Models for Nonprofit Organizations

This article is original content from the Stanford Social Innovation Review published in the spring 2009 issue.

By understanding these ten financing models, nonprofit leaders can tap into the valuable experience of for-profit companies to engage in clear and concise conversations about long-term financial strategies.


Money is a constant topic of conversation among nonprofit leaders : How much money do we need? Where can we find it? Why don't we have more? During tough economic times, these types of questions become more frequent and pressing. Unfortunately, no answers are immediately available. This is because nonprofit leaders are focused on building programs rather than finding funding sources for their organizations, and philanthropists often don't fully understand the impact (and limitations) of their efforts. donations.

This financial confusion has consequences because when nonprofits and funding sources are not well coordinated with each other, money will not be directed to the areas where it can have the greatest impact. As a result, promising programs are suppressed, cut, or never started. Also, when there is a shortage of money, a chaotic fundraising scramble is more likely to ensue . 1

In contrast, in the for-profit business world there is a greater degree of clarity on financial matters, this is particularly true when understanding how different businesses operate. This understanding can be condensed into a set of principles known as business models. Although there is no definitive list of corporate business models, 2 there is a consensus on what they mean, so that investors and executives can engage in conversations that allow them to refine the strategy of any company. For example, when a person says that a company is a "low cost provider" or a fast follower (imitator) *, is making evident the profile through which said company operates. Similarly, by stating that a company is using the “bait and hook” model * it is describing a type of customer relationship which extends beyond the product in question.

Public benefits for people with disabilities

Social Security/SSI benefits for people with disabilities: Two kinds of benefits from the Social Security Administration

This section covers two programs. They both use the same definition of disability (except there is a special definition for children on SSI):


to. SSI Benefits

Supplemental Security Income (SSI): These benefits are for children and adults with limited income and resources. People over the age of 65 can also receive these benefits (with certain limitations for non-citizens). The SSI benefit level in California for 2016 is $889.40 for an elderly or disabled person and $1,496.20 for a couple. If you receive other income (such as SSDI/Title II benefits) that is less than standard SSI, you may also receive an SSI check to supplement your other income. If you receive even one dollar of SSI, you are automatically entitled to Medi-Cal at no cost.


b. SSDI/Title II Benefits

There are two types of Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. The first is for workers with disabilities who are insured under Social Security. The second is for disabled adult children of workers who have Social Security coverage who are retired, disabled, or deceased. Such benefits are sometimes called Title II benefits. Title II is the section that covers disability, retirement, and dependent benefits in the Social Security Act.

  1. For workers with disabilities
  • Social Security Disability Benefits (SSDI): These are benefits for people who have worked and paid into Social Security long enough to qualify for benefits when disabled. The disabled worker's spouse and children may be eligible for benefits in addition to the worker's. After 24 months of receiving SSDI benefits, the beneficiary begins receiving Medicare.
  1. For disabled adult children of workers
  • Social Security Disabled Adult Child Benefits (DAC or CDB): This is a special Title II program for people who are at least 18 years old, who became disabled before they turned 22, and who are single at the time of application. These special dependent benefits use the earnings of a retired, disabled, or deceased parent (or other caregiver) who paid Social Security. The disabled adult child is not eligible for these benefits until the parent begins receiving Title II benefits upon retirement, disability, or death. After 24 months of benefits, the DAC/CDB beneficiary is eligible for Medicare.
