The ACP is a federal benefit program that provides a discount of up to $30 per month to eligible households to help cover internet subscription costs.

Depending on the internet company you sign-up with, you could also be eligible for a one-time discount of up to $100 for a laptop, tablet, or desktop computer (with a co-payment between $10 and $50). This means that you and your family could get and stay connected online at almost no cost!
