Affordable Connectivity Program

The Affordable Connectivity Program is an FCC benefit program that helps ensure that households can afford the broadband they need for work, school, healthcare and more.

The benefit provides a discount of up to $30 per month toward internet service for eligible households and up to $75 per month for households on qualifying 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.

Without additional funding from Congress, the allotted $14.2 billion to fund the ACP is projected to run out in April 2024.  As a result, the FCC has begun taking steps to wind down the program.  This means that no new enrollments will be processed after February 7, 2024

Households receiving the monthly internet discount before February 8, 2024, will continue to receive their ACP benefit until the ACP funds run out, as long as the household remains enrolled in the program.  After the ACP funds run out, households participating in the ACP will no longer receive the ACP discounts.  ACP Households will receive notices from their internet company regarding the ending of ACP, the impact on their bill, the last bill they will receive that includes the ACP benefit, and that they may change their service or opt-out of continuing service without penalty.
