IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING THE AFFORDABLE CONNECTIVITY PROGRAM (ACP): ACP will end April 2024! After ACP ends, your internet or cell phone bill will increase by up to $30 unless you cancel or change your plan. Please contact your provider if you have additional questions.


How long does ACP take to verify?

Applying online for the ACP may result in immediate approval. However, in cases where automatic eligibility confirmation is not possible, additional documentation may be required for review. If applicants choose to apply by mail, they should expect a longer processing time due to the postal service’s involvement.

Who funds the Affordable Connectivity Program?

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) administers the $14 billion ACP, which provides up to $30 monthly ($75 on Tribal lands) to low-income households for use toward the monthly cost of a broadband connection.

What does the Affordable Connectivity Program cover?

Launched in early 2022, the program offers eligible households up to a $30 discount on their monthly internet bill, or potentially free on selective plans ($75 for households on qualifying Tribal lands). ACP households are also eligible for a one-time $100 discount when buying a laptop or tablet from participating providers.

Does the Affordable Connectivity Program(ACP) check credit?

No. The rules, which are meant to encourage greater consumer choice, also prevent providers from running credit checks to determine which ACP-supported internet plan a household can apply their benefit to or restrict the type of plan available to a household based on their credit.
