About the Affordable Connectivity Program

Congress recently created the Affordable Connectivity Program, a long-term, $14 billion program, which replaced the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program. This investment in broadband affordability will help ensure everyone can afford the internet connections needed for work, school, health care and more for a long time.

The benefit will provide a discount of up to $30 per month toward internet service for eligible households and up to $75 per month for households on qualifying Tribal lands. Eligible households can also receive a one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet from participating providers if they contribute more than $10 and less than $50 toward the purchase price.

The Affordable Connectivity Program is limited to one monthly service discount and one device discount per household.
