High-speed internet is a necessity – especially for students. That’s why the 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 (or $75/month on Tribal lands), 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 benefit. A family is eligible if any one of 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 ($55,500 for a
family of four)
• A member of the household participates in certain other federal programs, like Medicaid or
• The household meets the eligibility criteria for a participating provider’s existing low-income
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.
