Internet Assistance Programs

High-speed internet is a necessity – especially for students. That’s why the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law created the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) to lower internet costs. ACP provides:

  • Up to $30/month off your household’s internet bills (or $75/month on Tribal lands), and

  • A one-time $100 discount off a laptop, tablet, or computer.

Many internet service providers across the country offer high-speed internet plans that are fully covered by ACP – so millions of families can now get high-speed internet without paying a dime.

Is my family eligible to save on our internet bill?
