Affordable Connectivity Program

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) program that provides funds and discounts for families and households struggling to afford internet service.  If the household income is below 200% of the Federal Poverty Line,  you could be eligible. Click here to learn about household eligibility.  

If eligible, households may receive assistance of up to $30 a month in discounts for broadband service, or a one-time discount of up to $100 for a laptop, desktop, computer, or tablet purchased through a participating provider. To learn more about the program, click here.  

The Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development is hosting a webinar to provide an overview of the ACP for interested stakeholders. The webinar will cover more information on the ACP, who is eligible, how to apply, ACP outreach grant opportunities, and a Q&A session. You can click here to register for the ACP Overview webinar.
