Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP)

Need help with Internet costs?

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a national, U.S. government program giving low-income households a discount of up to $30 per month for internet service and some discounts on computer device costs. Households can apply for the program by visiting www.ACPBenefit.org

Lower-income residents (below 200% of federal poverty level) or who are receiving public benefits such as free school lunch, WIC/SNAP, Pell grants, subsidized housing, and Medicaid. Lifeline users also qualify. 


Find out of you qualify here: https://acpbenefit.org/do-i-qualify/.

Getting the ACP benefit requires one or two steps: (1) confirming eligibility and (2) signing up with the internet provider to apply for the subsidy.


Some internet providers with a low-income program allow direct ACP sign-up; others will require the federal ACP eligibility sign-up first.

  • In the Seattle area, Comcast Internet Essentials customers can apply directly through Comcast.  PCs for People and Human I-T also allow direct signup.

There are also other mobile service providers that are on the EBB. Look here to see whether your current provider is on the program: https://acpbenefit.org/companies-near-me.


It is important to remember the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is designed to support internet service so if your current mobile phone provider does not also give you a good internet connectivity data plan, we recommend you look at other service provider options
