AFFORDABLE CONNECTIVITY PROGRAM

High-speed home Internet allows Americans to work remotely, send their children to school, participate in the social safety net and access healthcare, job training, and critical government services.

 

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a federal benefit that aims to connect individuals by providing eligible households with a discount of $30/month toward their home Internet bill or $75/month for households on Tribal lands.

 

In addition, the benefit provides a one-time $100 discount toward a connected device through a participating provider. Click here to search for a list of device & internet ACP providers in your area.

If you participate in any of the following programs, you automatically qualify for the ACP:

• SNAP

• Federal Public Housing Assistance

• Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

• WIC

• Veterans Pension or Survivor Benefits

• Lifeline
