What is the Affordable Connectivity Program?
The FCC’s Affordable Connectivity Program has replaced the Emergency Broadband Benefit. This $14 billion investment in broadband affordability will help people get the internet connections they need for work, school, health care and much more.
The Affordable Connectivity Program provides eligible households with a discount on broadband service and connected devices. This program provides a discount of up to $30 per month toward the internet for eligible households and up to $75 per month for homes on qualifying Tribal lands. Find out if you're eligible for the program and how to apply at AffordableConnectivity.gov.
