Affordable Connectivity Program

ACP UPDATE

Due to a lack of additional funding from Congress, the ACP stopped accepting new applications as of February 7, 2024. The last fully funded month of the program is April 2024. No program discounts will be honored after April 30, 2024.

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is an FCC program to help low-income households pay for internet service. The benefit will provide eligible households with a discount of up to $30 per month towards broadband service or up to $75 per month for households on Tribal lands. 

A household is eligible if a member of the household meets at least one of the criteria below:

  • Your income is at or below 200% of the federal poverty guidelines
  • Your household participates in assistance programs such as:
      • Lifeline
      • Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)
      • Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC)
      • Medicaid
      • Federal Public Housing Assistance (FPHA)
      • Veterans Pension and Survivors Benefit
      • Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
      • Free and Reduced-Price School Lunch Program or School Breakfast Program, including at U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Community Eligibility Provision schools
      • Federal Pell Grant (current award year)

The ACP Program is a federal government subsidy that reduces the customer’s broadband Internet access service bill and at the conclusion of the Program, the household will be subject to the provider’s undiscounted general rates, terms, and conditions if the household continues to subscribe to the service.

The ACP benefit is non-transferable and limited to one monthly internet discount per household. Please note: If the household becomes ineligible for the ACP, they will be responsible for paying all discounts unrecovered by Firefly.
