What is the Affordable Connectivity Program?
Making ends meet in a challenging economy is tough. Access to fast and reliable internet service creates more job opportunities for struggling families as well as provides a sense of belonging and stability for kids whose friends (and homework) are online.
The Affordable Connectivity Program is a government program overseen by the FCC to help low-income households pay for internet services.
If your household income is below 200% of the Federal Poverty Line or are currently receiving a government benefit like SNAP, Medicaid, WIC, Free or Reduced-Price Lunch, SSI, or a Pell Grant, you may be eligible.
If your household is eligible, you could receive:
- Up to a $30/month discount on your internet service
- Up to a $75/month discount if your household is on qualifying Tribal lands
- A one-time discount of up to $100 for a laptop, tablet, or desktop computer (with a co-payment of more than $10 but less than $50)
- A low cost service plan that may be fully covered through the ACP
