IT&E | Affordable Connectivity Program

What is the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP)?

Formerly the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program, the Affordable Connectivity Program is a benefit program under the Federal Communications Commission that helps ensure that households can afford the broadband they need for work, school, healthcare and more.

The program provides eligible subscribers with $30.00 worth of assistance per month for broadband services and a one-time discount of $100 for one tablet. A household can only get one benefit, not per person, for internet service. A qualified consumer cannot give their benefit to another person, if that other person qualifies

Subscribers enrolled in the Emergency Benefit Broadband Program before or by December 30, 2021 will continue to receive the original $50 discount under this program until March 1, 2022. After this date, the ACP discount of $30 will apply. Any household that qualified for the EBB Program due to financial impacts from the pandemic, will have to reapply to receive the discount under the ACP. All others will be automatically migrated to the ACP and no action is needed.
