Affordable Connectivity Program Para español

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a federal program administered by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to help low-income households pay for Internet service. It replaces the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program, which expired on March 1st of this year.

The ACP provides a discount of up to $30 per month toward broadband service for eligible households and $75 per month for households on qualifying Tribal lands.

  • Participates in certain government assistance programs such as SNAP, Medicaid, WIC, or other programs
