Congressional Response Programs

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Congress created multiple programs to help people stay connected during and beyond this disruptive period. The FCC designated USAC to administer these programs and funds, which include the Emergency Connectivity Fund (ECF) Program, the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), and the COVID-19 Telehealth Program.
