Affordable Connectivity Program
Posted on Monday May 17, 2021
The Affordable Connectivity Program is a $14 billion federal initiative to help lower the cost of high-speed internet for eligible households.
Want Help?
Many households are struggling to afford internet service during the pandemic.  But the federal Affordable Connectivity Program provides:

- $30 a month for internet services
- $75 a month for those living on tribal lands
- A one-time discount of up to $100 for a laptop, tablet, or desktop computer (with a co-payment of more than $10 but less than $50)

Who Can Get Help?
Some people who may get the discount includes:

- have income at or below 135% of federal poverty guidelines;
- received Lifeline benefits through SNAP, Medicaid, Supplemental Security Income, Federal Public Housing Assistance, or Veterans and Survivors Pension Benefit;
- received a Federal Pell Grant during the current award year; or
- experienced a substantial loss of income due to job loss or furlough since February 29, 2020 and the household had a total income in 2020 at or below $99,000 for single filers and $198,000 for joint filers.
