What you need to know about the Affordable Connectivity Program

  • The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a long-term $14 billion program of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), funded by the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act.

  • The ACP provides eligible households with a $30/month discount toward high-speed internet and a one-time discount of $100 toward the purchase of a connected device.

  • Eligible households located on Tribal lands can receive up to $75/month toward high-speed internet access.

  • A household can qualify for the ACP benefit if they meet at least one of the following criteria: a member of the household participates in a government assistance program, such as Medicaid or SNAP, if a dependent within the household attends a Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) school or receives free or reduced-price meals at school, or if the household income is at 200% of the federal poverty level.

  • With the ACP benefit of $30/month, some home internet plans are free.

  • Applicants can visit EducationSuperHighway’s pre-enrollment tool, GetACP.org, to learn if they qualify, what documents they’ll need to apply, and how to connect to home internet plans that are free with ACP.

  • Using GetACP.org, applicants can answer a few simple questions and receive a personalized checklist that saves time when applying for the benefit. It takes about 5 minutes.
