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. The ACP provides:
• Up to $30/month off your household’s internet bills (or $75/month on qualifying Tribal lands), and
• A one-time discount of up to $100 off a laptop, tablet, or desktop computer.
Many internet service providers across the country offer high-speed internet plans that are fully covered by ACP – so millions of families can now get high-speed internet without paying a dime.
Is my family eligible to save on our internet bill?
All households with a child who was approved to receive free or reduced-price school meals under the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) or the School Breakfast Program (SBP), within the last 12 months, including children who attend schools participating in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP), are eligible for ACP benefits.
Note that every household with a child attending a school participating in the CEP is eligible for ACP benefits. Households are also eligible if a member of a household participates in certain federal benefit programs—including, among others, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children, Medicaid, and Federal Public Housing Assistance.
