Families Can Save on Their Internet Bills with the Affordable Connectivity Program
High-speed internet is a necessity – especially for students. That’s why the federal Bipartisan Infrastructure Law created the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) to lower internet costs for families. ACP provides eligible households:
Up to $30/month off their internet bills; and
A one-time $100 discount off a laptop, tablet, or computer.
Tens of millions of families are eligible but have not yet claimed their benefits. A family is eligible if any oneof the following applies:
A child participates in the Free and Reduced-Price School Lunch or Breakfast Program, including at Community Eligibility Provision schools;
The household’s income is 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines or less ($60,000 for a family of four);
A member of the household participates in certain other federal programs, like Medicaid or SNAP; or
The household meets the eligibility criteria for a participating provider’s existing low-income plan.
Many internet service providers offer high-speed plans that are fully covered by ACP – meaning millions of families can now get high-speed internet without paying a dime. GetInternet.gov is a one-stop shop to check eligibility and sign up. Families can also call 877-384-2575 for more ways to apply. Help spread the word with the ACP Consumer Outreach Toolkit.
