New Affordable Connectivity Program Helps Households Access Internet, Get Discounts on Equipment
Congress recently created the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), a new, long-term, $14 billion program, which will provide a discount to help families afford internet connectivity needed for work, school, health care, and more. Eligible households:
  • Will receive a $30 a month discount for internet connectivity.
  • Can receive a one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet from participating providers.
  • Can enroll through an approved provider or by visiting
Households will have ways to qualify for the ACP, such as receiving WIC benefits or having an income at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. The $30 per month discount will be paid directly to the participating internet provider.
