GENEVA - The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) announced the continuation of the Pandemic Internet Access Program for ICANN73, a press release stated by ICANN.

How to Apply

Interested community members must apply in advance of ICANN73. Those who meet the eligibility requirements will be able to participate. The application deadline is Friday, 18 February 2022 at 23:59 Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

Background

The goal of this program is to facilitate participation in ICANN Public Meetings during the pandemic. It offers community members who have limited Internet capacity financial assistance to increase their Internet bandwidth.

Leaders from three Supporting Organizations, four Advisory Committees, four stakeholder groups, five constituencies from the Generic Names Supporting Organization, and five Regional At-Large Organizations from the At-Large community all will have the opportunity to nominate a limited number of recipients to the program. They will focus on members who are actively engaged in the ICANN community but may not have previously been eligible to apply.

Reimbursement amounts of up to USD 60 will be provided to eligible applicants who purchase additional Internet bandwidth (capacity or data limits) for the duration of the month or billing cycle for March 2022. The services must be rendered by a business entity or Internet service provider, specifically for Internet or cellular data service. The provider must also provide digital or paper documentation of the upgrade costs.
