• The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP)

    Free or Low-Cost Internet Services Available to All Households with Kids at Schools Participating in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP)

     

    Important Information - The ACP Offers Lower Internet Costs for Eligible Families.

    Dear Parents,

    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 with the following:

    • Up to $30/month off their internet bills (or $75/month on Tribal lands).
    • 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.
    • A member of the household participates in certain other federal programs, like Medicaid or SNAP.
    • The household meets the eligibility criteria for a participating provider’s existing low-income plan.

    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.
