Affordable Connectivity Program - Frequently Asked Questions:

What is the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP)?

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a federal program created as part of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. Among other things, this program can help qualified households pay for connectivity services such as wireless and internet plans. The program extends and modifies the more temporary Emergency Broadband Benefit.

Can I apply for multiple Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) discounts?

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) will only provide each household with monthly assistance for one service at a time. For example, if you are already receiving assistance for your wireless service, you cannot also receive (ACP) assistance for your internet plan.

How is the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) different from the Emergency Broadband Benefit BB)? 

The EBB was an emergency program created in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Among other things, the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a replacement and extension of the EBB program. The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) changes the amount of assistance from $50 per month to $30 per month for participants who do not live on tribal lands. Participants on qualified tribal land will still receive $75 per month in the new version of the program.
