The ACP is a new benefit for eligible households to provide up to $30/month (or $75/month for households living on Tribal lands) toward their internet bills and a one-time discount on other technology resources.


Here are the ways your household can qualify for the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP):


  • Based on your household income
  • If you or your child or dependent participate in certain government assistance programs such as SNAP, Medicaid, WIC, or other programs
  • If you or anyone in your household already receives a Lifeline benefit
