The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a government-funded initiative to help low-income households access internet service. The ACP provides eligible households (whether that’s a single person or a family) a discount of up to $30 per month on internet service ($75 per month if you live on qualifying Tribal lands). You can also receive a one-time discount of up to $100 toward a laptop, desktop, or tablet computer if you contribute between $10 and $50 toward the purchase.
Although not every internet service provider (ISP) participates in the ACP, most do—particularly the big names. Even better, many participating ISPs have a plan that’s $30 or less—meaning that once you apply the ACP discount, you effectively get your internet service for free.
