Affordable Connectivity Program Can Provide $30 Per Month for an Internet Subscription
The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a permanent, federally funded program that replaces the temporary Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) that was set up during distance learning. The ACP is available to all families that are eligible for free and reduced lunches. It can provide $30 a month to help with an internet subscription and a $100 benefit to help with purchasing a device, such as a laptop, Chromebook, or tablet. Visit GetMyInternet.org, available in English and Spanish, to learn more about the ACP.
To qualify for the program, families need to be able to show that their income is below a certain amount. Or they need to participate in at least one of several government assistance programs, such as SNAP, WIC, Free and Reduced Lunch (as established in the Multipurpose Family Income Form), or a tribal assistance program. Find out more about how to qualify and prove eligibility.
Note: to apply you will need to provide a Social Security Number, use a government-issued ID, passport, driver’s license, tribal identification number, or individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN) documentation.
Once your application is approved, you will choose a participating internet provider. AT&T, Comcast, and several other providers participate in the program. Here is the full list of participating local providers.
