The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development is launching a new partnership with the U.S. Federal Communications Commission to make sure everyone who is eligible for the Affordable Connectivity Program has the opportunity to benefit from free or low-cost internet.

With the FCC’s Affordable Connectivity Program, you can save on your bill and may be able to get high-speed internet for free.

The program provides eligible households:

  • Service discount up to $30/month
  • Service discount up to $75/month on qualifying Tribal lands
  • Device discount up to $100 for a qualifying device

Do I Qualify?

  • Based on your household income
  • If you or your child or dependent participate in certain government assistance programs such as SNAP, Medicaid, WIC, or other programs
  • If you or anyone in your household already receives a Lifeline benefit

Based on Your Income

You are eligible for the ACP if your income is 200% or less than the Federal Poverty Guidelines (see the table below). The guideline is based on your household size and state.
