Affordable Connectivity Program Transition
The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) might be ending. Applications closed on February 7, 2024. Here’s what you need to know:
- If you are enrolled in ACP before February 7, 2024, you will keep getting the $30 or $75 benefit until the fund runs out, which is expected to be in April 2024.
- You should be getting two more notices from your Internet Service Provider (ISP). You should have received the first notice on or before January 25, 2024.
- Around mid-March, you should get a notice telling you the last bill that you will receive with the ACP benefit.
- You should also get a notice during the last billing cycle with ACP.
- Your ISP should tell you what the cost of your bill will be without the ACP benefit.
- Your ISP should tell you about ways to cancel your service or switch to a different plan.
The Federal Communication Commission (FCC) has another program to help you connect to the internet.
Lifeline is a federal program dedicated to making phone and internet service more affordable for low-income households. This benefit provides eligible consumers with a monthly discount of up to $9.25. Consumers living on Tribal lands are eligible for an enhanced discount of up to $34.25 per month.
