The FCC Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP)
What is the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP)?
The Affordable Connectivity Program is a government funded program by the FCC to help offset the cost of broadband services for eligible households during COVID-19.
The program was originally referred to as the FCC’s Emergency Broadband Benefit but has changed to the Affordable Connectivity Program and will provide a discount of up to $30 (previously $50) per month towards broadband service for eligible households and up to $75 per month for eligible households on Tribal lands.
Who will qualify for ACP funds?
A household is eligible if one member of the household meets at least one of the criteria below:
• Has an income that is at or below 200% of the federal poverty guidelines;
• Is approved to receive benefits under the free and reduced-price school lunch program or the school breakfast program, including through the USDA Community Eligibility Provision in the 2019-2020, 2020-2021, or 2021-2022 school year;
