The City of Tucson is providing wireless access to members of the community to support remote learning, teleworking, and access to virtual services. This Community Wireless Program is funded through the federal CARES Act Coronavirus Relief Fund and allocated to this program by the Mayor and Tucson City Council.
Internet services, for qualified applicants selected through the application process, will be available for one year, until Dec. 31, 2021. Applicants must live within the coverage areas, be at least 18 years of age, have experienced financial hardship due to COVID-19, and reside in a household with at least one school-aged child or college student, a member who is 60 or older, or a member with a high-risk health condition that puts them at greater risk if they were to become ill with COVID-19. The online application is open now and will close on Dec. 21 of this year. Notification of selection will go out to applicants before Dec. 31. There are limited wireless routers available due to funding limitations.
Priority will be given to those households with school-age children and enrolled college students who are remote learning and require internet connectivity, who have not yet received any state or federal COVID-19 funds, and whose income does not reach the self-sufficiency standard for Pima County. Complete your application as soon as possible. Only one application per household is allowed, and an application is not a guarantee of assistance.
