Things to do: Subsidized Internet and a summer cultural fete in the Mission

Are you eligible for subsidized internet?

A citywide program launched in May enables more than 124,000 San Francisco households to access free or low-cost Internet services subsidized by the federal government. Yet only 26% of eligible households are enjoying the benefits.

For those interested in a $30 monthly discount off your Internet bill, head to to check your eligibility. In general, families with one or more users of medical, SNAP, WIC, or Pell grant recipients are eligible, as well as those with annual incomes less than 200 percent of the federal poverty level $29,160 for one person and $49,720 for a family of three people.

Saturday June 3rd

San Francisco International Festival of the Arts

This year SFIAF is bringing dance, theatre, music and performance art to venues around the Mission including the Brava Theater Center, Dance Mission Theater, Theater of Yugen and the Joe Goode Annex.

Everyone loves being in the Mission, said Andrew Wood, executive director of SFIAF, which has been squeezed out of its old headquarters at Fort Mason. As much as I love Ft. Mason, it’s surrounded by the Marina, a neighborhood where people don’t always feel welcome. In the Mission everyone feels at home.

The event takes place from 3 to 18 June. Further information is available here.

Free concert

A six-hour free concert will be held this Saturday at the Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts by the Entire Community Music Center to raise scholarship funds and celebrate its founder, Gertrude Field.

The Performathon will take place June 3 from 11am to 5pm at 2868 Mission St. between 24th and 25th. More information can be found here.
