What is the ACP?

The Affordable Connectivity Program is an FCC program designed to assist qualifying individuals and families with finding affordable internet access. It can help cover the cost of broadband internet used for school, work, healthcare and more.

How does the ACP work?

If you qualify for the program, it provides a subsidy benefit of up to $30 for most Americans, and up to $75 for Americans on Tribal lands to cover the cost of internet. You can also receive a one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet from participating providers.

This benefit is designed to be used in conjunction with an internet service provider’s existing plan. To aid in this effort, many ISPs have created special plans that can fully cover the cost of internet, or at least provide a substantial discount.

Who is eligible?
Per the FCC website, entities eligible for the ACP include: Households where income is at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines, or if a member of the household meets at least one of the criteria below:

  • Received a Federal Pell Grant during the current award year;
  • Meets the eligibility criteria for a participating provider’s existing low-income internet program;
  • Participates in one of these assistance programs:
    • SNAP
    • Medicaid
    • Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
    • WIC
    • Veterans Pension or Survivor Benefits
    • Lifeline
    • Other qualifying federal programs
  • Participates in one of these assistance programs:
    • Bureau of Indian Affairs General Assistance
