A program to help ensure that households can afford the broadband they need for work, school, healthcare, and more is available from the Federal Communications Commission.

The Affordable Connectivity Program [ACP] provides a $30 per month stipend toward internet service for eligible households and up to $75 per month for eligible households on 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 ACP is limited to one monthly service discount and one device discount per household.

A household is eligible for the ACP if the household income is at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines or if a member of the household meets the following criteria:

  • Participates in certain assistance programs, such as SNAP [Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program], Medicaid, Federal Public Housing Assistance, SSI [Supplemental Security Income], WIC [Women, Infants, and Children], or Lifeline [Medical Alert].
  • Participates in Tribal specific programs, such as Bureau of Indian Affairs General Assistance, Tribal TANF [Temporary Aid to Needy Families], or Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations.
  • Participated in the National School Lunch Program or the School Breakfast Program, including the USDA Community Eligibility Provision.
  • Received a Pell Grant during the current award year.
  • Meets the legibility criteria for a participating provider’s existing low-income internet program.

For information on the program, and how to apply visit the FCC ACP website.
