Discounted internet access for families

  • squares in patternHelping households stay connected

     

    The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) program that replaces the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program (EBB Program) to help low-income households pay for internet service and connected devices.

     

    If your household is eligible, you can receive:

    • Up to a $30/month discount on your internet service
    • Up to a $75/month discount if your household is on qualifying Tribal lands
    • A one-time discount of up to $100 for a laptop, tablet, or desktop computer (with a co-payment of more than $10 but less than $50)

     

    Only one monthly service discount and one device discount is allowed per household. To receive the connected device discount, consumers need to enroll in the ACP with a participating provider that offers connected devices (Note: not all internet companies offer device discounts.) The internet company will provide the discount to the consumer.

  • Below are some participating providers and options for discounts on computers.
