The Affordable Connectivity Program
The Affordable Connectivity Program is an FCC program to help low-income households pay for internet service and connected devices. This new benefit will connect eligible households to jobs, critical healthcare services, virtual classrooms, and so much more.
- The Affordable Connectivity Program will provide a discount of up to $30 per month towards broadband internet service for eligible households. Up to $75 per month discount for households on qualifying Tribal lands.
- Eligible households can also receive a one-time device discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet from participating providers. Households must first contribute at least $10 (but not more than $50) toward the purchase price.
- The Affordable Connectivity Program is limited to one monthly service discount and one device discount per household.
The FCC and USAC have developed resources to help consumer advocacy groups, Tribal communities, social service agencies, and other organizations that support eligible consumers spread awareness about the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), and help families determine if they qualify, and encourage them to apply for the program.
