Get Connected

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a federal benefit that aims to provide eligible
households with a $30/month discount on their home Internet bill. In addition, the benefit
provides a one-time $100 discount toward a connected device through a participating provider.
We are committed to closing the broadband affordability gap so that every resident has equal
access to the digital age opportunities.
A household is eligible if one member of the household meets at least one of the criteria below:
● Has an income that is at or below 200% of theFederal Poverty Guidelines
● Participates in certain assistance programs, such as SNAP, Medicaid, Federal Public
Housing Assistance, SSI, WIC, or Lifeline
● Is approved to receive benefits under the free and reduced-price school lunch program or
the school breakfast program, including through the USDA Community Eligibility
Provision (CEP)
● Received a Federal Pell Grant during the current award year
● Meets the eligibility criteria for a participating broadband provider’s existing low-income
● Participates in one of several Tribal specific programs, such as Bureau of Indian Affairs
General Assistance, Tribal Head Start (only households meeting the relevant income
qualifying standard), Tribal TANF, or Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations.
