About the Affordable Connectivity Program
The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) was established by Congress to help lower-income families afford reliable, high-speed internet. It’s part of the Federal Communications Commission’s mission to ensure that all people, regardless of their income, can access the internet services and computer technology that are essential to our modern world.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will I have to pay anything?

ACP will cover the full cost of your tablet and 5 years of internet service. You will only be responsible for the one time $20 activation fee at the time of pick up.

Nothing else! We promise.

My child receives FREE or reduced lunch/breakfast. What do I need to do to sign up for ACP?

Families will need a letter stating that their child participates in a free and reduced-priced lunch program by attending a Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) school. Letters issued by the school—or for some CEP schools, a student’s report card—may serve as proof of eligibility for ACP.

Will I need to provide my Social Security Number (SSL) to sign up?

No. If a household is unable to provide an SSN or feels uncomfortable doing so, they can use a government-issued ID, passport, driver’s license, tribal identification number, or individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN) documentation.

How long will this program last?

The ACP is a permanent program. This is a change from the EBB, which was a temporary program for the pandemic emergency. When Congress turned the EBB into the ACP, they also ended its emergency designation.

What income is used for ACP?

If a consumer household’s gross annual income is 200% or less than the federal poverty guidelines, they qualify for the ACP. The table below reflects the income limit by household size, which is 200% of the 2022 Federal Poverty Guidelines.
