About the 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 an internet service package for eligible households and up to $75 per month for households on qualifying Tribal lands.
To apply go to ACPBenefit.org to submit an application or print out a mail-in application.
Once you have been approved for the ACP Benefit, please contact your preferred participating service provider. Please note that your provider will require information to enroll you in the program as you are NOT automatically enrolled when you are approved.
