Can I receive both the enhanced Tribal Lifeline Benefit and the $75 Emergency Broadband Benefit each month?

Yes.  An eligible household on Tribal lands can receive both the $34.25 Lifeline Tribal benefit and the $75 Emergency Broadband Benefit.  They can be applied to the same qualifying service or separately to a Lifeline service and a broadband service with the same or different providers as long as the provider is participating in the Emergency Broadband Benefit program.  For example, an eligible household could have a Lifeline-supported mobile service and a separate home broadband service that is supported through the Emergency Broadband Benefit.
