Affordable Connectivity Program

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a long-term $14 billion federal program created through the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act to help low-income households pay for internet service and connected internet devices.

The ACP began accepting consumer applications December 31, 2021, and replaced the Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) Program.

  • Enhanced Tribal Benefit. Eligible households located on Tribal lands can receive a discount of up to $75 per month for internet service. They also qualify for a one-time device discount of up to $100 (with a co-pay of more than $10 and less than $50).
  • Tribal Lands Definition. The ACP uses the same definition of Tribal lands as the Lifeline program. An internet provider can help determine whether an address is on Tribal lands. For informational purposes, a nationwide map is available showing Tribal lands eligible for enhanced support.

See the Enhanced Tribal Benefit webpage for information for participants.
