What is the Affordable Connectivity Program?

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a U.S. government program run by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) program to help low-income households pay for internet service.

You are likely eligible if your household's income is below 200% of the Federal Poverty Line, or if you or someone you live with currently receives a government benefit like SNAP, Medicaid, SSI, WIC, Pell Grant, or Free and Reduced-Price Lunch.

If your household is eligible, you could receive:

  • Up to a $30/month discount on your internet service
  • A low cost service plan that may be fully covered through the ACP*

* Through a separate non-FCC initiative, additional no cost plans may be available to Affordable Connectivity Program enrollees. To learn more please visit Provision of a link to this initiative does not imply FCC endorsement of any particular participating provider.

*Only one monthly service discount and one device discount is allowed per household.

How to Apply:


The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a federal program created as part of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. Among other things, this program can help qualified households pay for connectivity services such as wireless and internet plans. The program extends and modifies the more temporary Emergency Broadband Benefit.
The ACP will only provide each household with monthly assistance for one service at a time. For example, if you are already receiving assistance for your wireless service, you cannot also receive ACP assistance for your internet plan.
The EBB was an emergency program created in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Among other things, the ACP is a replacement and extension of the EBB program. The ACP changes the amount of assistance from $50 per month to $30 per month for participants who do not live on tribal lands. Participants on qualified tribal land will still receive $75 per month in the new version of the program. For a more complete list of program changes and updates, visit the official FCC website.
