Letter from the Mayor

Dear Washingtonians, 

Earlier this week, I announced that on May 21, restrictions on most public and commercial activity, including capacity limits, types of activities, and time restrictions, will be lifted. Then, on June 11, capacity limits and restrictions will be lifted on those venues that cannot fully reopen on May 21 (bars, nightclubs, and large sports and entertainment venues).

As we prepare to dial up activity and get back to the people and places we love, we need everyone in DC who is 12 and older to get vaccinated. Why? Because we know that the vaccines work, we know that they are safe, and we know that people who are vaccinated can safely enjoy more activities than people who are unvaccinated. 

Furthermore, it has never been easier to get a COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccines are free and available seven days a week at walk-up sites, pharmacies, and clinics across DC

For 15 months we have been in this together. Now, let's crush the virus together and get back to enjoying all DC has to offer.

$50/Month Toward Your Internet Bill


This week, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) launched Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB), a temporary program to help low-income residents subsidize their at-home internet service. This $3.2 billion program will provide eligible District residents with much-needed free and subsidized internet service.

The EBB subsidy helps low-income households struggling to pay for internet service during the pandemic with:

  • Up to $50/month for internet service; and
  • A subsidy of up to $100 to participating internet service providers to offer a laptop, desktop or tablet for between $10-$50/HH.

Eligible households can enroll through a participating broadband provider or directly with the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) using an online or mail-in application.

Additional information about the Emergency Broadband Benefit is available at www.fcc.gov/broadbandbenefit, or by calling 833-511-0311 between 9:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. any day of the week.
