White House Announcement on Providing Affordable Access to Broadband
THE AFFORDABLE CONNECTIVITY PROGRAM (ACP)
President Biden and Vice President Harris worked with Democrats and Republicans to create the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP)—the largest high-speed internet affordability program in our nation’s history. Experts estimate that 48 million households—or nearly 40% of households in the country—qualify for the ACP either because their income is at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level, or because a member of the household meets one of the other criteria below:
Under the terms of the ACP, an eligible household that signs up for the program will receive a discount of up to $30/month on any internet service plan a participating provider offers. Households on Tribal Lands are eligible for a discount of up to $75/month. As of now, more than 1,300 internet service providers participate in the program, and more than 11.5 million households have signed up to receive the ACP benefit.
Apply for this benefit at https://www.fcc.gov/acp. Or, if you need to speak with someone about your eligibility for the ACP benefit or your application status, please call the ACP Support Center at (877) 384-2575.
