Affordable Connectivity Program

UPDATE: The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) has ended. 

Without additional funding from Congress, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) could no longer administer the program. Households that were participating in the ACP will no longer receive the ACP discounts.

What did the Affordable Connectivity Program provide?

  • A $30 per month benefit to help households afford access to high-speed internet service.
  • Up to a $75 per month discount if the household is on qualifying tribal lands.
  • A one-time discount of up to $100 for a laptop, tablet, or desktop computer (with a co-payment of more than $10 but less than $50).

Some people who may have received the discount:

  • Have income at or below 200% of federal poverty guidelines
  • Participate in certain assistance programs like SNAP, Medicaid, Federal Public Housing Assistance, SSI, WIC, or Lifeline
  • Are approved to receive benefits under the free and reduced-price school lunch program or the school breakfast program
