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. The ACP used to be a temporary program called the Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB).
In 2022, Congress made it permanent and renamed it the Affordable Connectivity Program. Congress also reduced the benefit amount from $50 per month to $30 per month, and changed eligibility requirements. If you used the EBB, make sure your internet provider is still giving you the ACP, and see if the changes affect your bill.
