WHAT IS ACP?
The Affordable Connectivity Program is an FCC benefit program that helps ensure that households can afford the broadband they need for work, school, healthcare, and more.
The benefit provides a discount of up to $30 per month toward internet service for eligible households and up to $75 per month for households on qualifying Tribal lands.
Eligible households can also receive a one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet from participating providers if they contribute more than $10 and less than $50 toward the purchase price.
The Affordable Connectivity Program is limited to one monthly service discount and one device discount per household.
Eligibility for the Affordable Connectivity Program requires a household income at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines or meeting at least one of the following criteria:
Receipt of a Federal Pell Grant in the current award year.
Qualification for a participating provider's low-income internet program.
Participation in federal assistance programs such as SNAP, Medicaid, Federal Housing Assistance, SSI, WIC, Veterans Pension or Survivor Benefits, Lifeline, or specific programs for residents on qualifying Tribal lands.
