Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP)

As part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the President and Congress created the ACP, which provides eligible households up to $30/month toward their internet bills, as well as a one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet. 

All households with a child who was approved to receive free or reduced price school meals under the National School Lunch Program or the School Breakfast Program, within the last 12 months, including children who attend schools participating in the Community Eligibility Provision, are eligible for ACP benefits. 

Households are also independently eligible if (1) their income is at or below 200 percent of the Federal Poverty Level ($55,500 for a family of four); or (2) a member of the household participates in certain other Federal benefit programs — including, among others, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), Medicaid, and Federal Public Housing Assistance. Families can check their eligibility, sign up, and find fully covered plans at or by calling 877-384-2575.

Additionally, please note that this benefit is not considered income for purposes of determining eligibility for free and reduced price school meals.
